Are You Ready to Apply?

The Wake Forest College LAUNCH for Leadership Program is designed for high performing, underrepresented high school students who are college bound. Admission decisions are based on the application information, essays, recommendation from school personnel, and high school transcript.

Students who will be juniors during the 2021-2022 academic year are eligible to apply. Additionally, applicants should be from Winston-Salem, Charlotte, or the surrounding communities, as Scholars are expected to attend monthly in-person events at their regional Wake Forest University campus (Winston-Salem Main Campus or Charlotte Campus).

The 2021-2022 Charlotte cohort is full at this time. Our Winston-Salem cohort has remaining spots and all interested applicants in Winston-Salem and the surrounding communities are encouraged to apply.
