Guy T. Carswell Scholarships
Begun in 1968, Guy T. Carswell Scholarships are
awarded to students with outstanding qualities of academic promise,
leadership, and talent. Successful applicants have pursued the
most challenging curriculum available to them and have achieved
grade point averages and SAT scores that place them in the top
few percentage points in comparison to their peers (often in
the top 1 percent of their class, with SAT-1 scores above 1500).
Further, Carswell Scholars have typically been leaders in a
variety of extracurricular pursuits and won recognition for
their interests at the regional, state, or national level.
Carswell Scholarships provide up to six scholarships to cover
the annual cost of tuition, room and board, plus $1500 for personal
expenses. Carswell Scholars are encouraged to apply for up to
$3000 for a research, study, or travel project during each of
the three summers between the first and senior years. Carswell
Scholars also receive an extra $500 allowance for expenses related
to one semester at a Wake Forest overseas program.
Finalists are invited to campus for interviews and are notified by the end of March.
