Nancy Susan Reynolds Scholarships
Nancy Susan Reynolds Scholars must be not only
excellent students and promising scholars, but also creative
leaders who are able to influence others in directions likely
to benefit society. They will have achieved unusual distinction
in the classroom and beyond. 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, Reynolds Scholars have typically been leaders in a
variety of extracurricular pursuits and won recognition for
their interests at the regional, state, or national level.
Reynolds Scholarships have been awarded since 1982, and up
to six Reynolds Scholars are chosen annually. Each Reynolds
Scholarship covers the annual cost of tuition, room, and board,
plus $1,500 for personal expenses. Reynolds Scholars are encouraged
to apply for up to $3,000 for a research, study, or travel project
during each of the three summers between the first and senior
years. Reynolds Scholars also receive an extra $500 allowance
for expenses related to one semester at a Wake Forest overseas
Finalists are invited to campus for interviews and are notified by the end of March.
