Annual and Endowed Scholarships

Foundation scholarships make pursuing an education affordable for many and enables Wake Tech to attract and retain talented students. Scholarships may be designated to assist diploma, certificate, or associate degree students in any curriculum program; and may be based on financial need or academic merit according to donor preference. Donors may establish an endowment or fund a scholarship annually to acknowledge student needs or accomplishments, honor or memorialize someone, or create a corporate presence at Wake Tech.
