All international applicants must provide proof of sufficient financial support for their course of study at the law school. The Law School offers a limited number of merit based scholarships for international students, and no additional assistance is available once the student is enrolled. We strongly encourage applicants to investigate additional sources of financial assistance in their home countries.
International applicants must submit the following financial documentation:
Certified bank statements: Certified bank statements or other official financial support statements indicating sufficient funds to cover all tuition and living expenses during their studies at Wake Forest Law. Bank or financial statements must be accompanied by a cover letter on the financial institution’s letterhead.
Sponsorship letter(s): Sponsored applicants must submit a letter affirming the sponsoring agency’s commitment to provide sufficient funds for their LL.M. studies. This letter should be on official letterhead and include the amount of the scholarship provided. Applicants sponsored by parents or other family members will need to submit a signed letter stating their relationship to you and their commitment to financially sponsor your studies in the U.S. Included with the letter should be an official letter from a bank or other financial institution verifying that they have sufficient funds to provide for your full course of study and living expenses.
