Winston-Salem State University offers several types of merit-based institutional awards. All accepted applicants are automatically considered for scholarship opportunities. Awards are determined based on a student’s academic profile ranking within the total accepted applicant pool for the year in question, and awards are made based on allotted institutional funding available. Partial scholarships are also offered in varying amounts based on available funding. After funding is exhausted for a term, no additional awards will be made.

A Chancellor Scholarship includes all tuition and fees not covered by state or federal grant sources or other scholarships, excluding the university enrollment fee. This scholarship also includes a book stipend up to $650 per term.
