WFU 2018 Scholarships

Does anyone know if smaller (not full ride) WFU scholarship packets come out with RD acceptances or later? I was accepted ED back in October, and I've been waiting since then to see if I got any $$!!

    I think you would have heard before if you were receiving aid, except for the competitive merit scholarships that come out after RD. If you require need-based aid, they would let you know how much you'd be offered soon after acceptance so you could determine if you could afford to attend and decline the ED offer if need-based aid was not sufficient. Of course some of the merit scholarships are open to ED and RD students, so those are awarded later. They only go to a limited # of students. I suggest you contact the school to check on your status relative to aid. Good luck!

    Acceptances do not contain any information on Scholarships/Financial Aid. Those will come in a separate package, usually by early/mid April.

    Agree with WakeDad. Spoke with admissions last week and they said early/mid April for additional merit scholarships. Makes it hard to plan trips in April, but we still have our fingers crossed. :)

    My daughter got her FA package last week. She received a scholarship labeled "college scholarship" for $15,800.
    After that, she was notified she got the Presidential Scholarship, which I know is usually for $16,000. I wonder if they will stack both scholarships .
    I called the school but they only said to wait until the end of the week with an updated F.A. package. Anyone have had a similar experience?
