Henry & Dorothy Castle Memorial Early Childhood Education Scholarship
The Committee on Scholarships and Student Aid annually recognizes up to ten students as Thomas E. and Ruth Mullen Scholars of the Upperclass Carswell Scholarships. Applicants must have completed at least one year of coursework at Wake Forest and are judged on the basis of academic and extracurricular leadership while here. The competition is keen, with recipients generally standing at least in the top 10% of the class. Once awarded, the scholarship may be renewed through the fourth year of undergraduate study. The stipend is $1,500 per year (though it could be less if the student has extensive other scholarships or financial aid packages). Students selected before the senior year are eligible to apply for summer grants of up to $2,000 to support research of educational value.
In order to apply, the student should address to the Committee a letter that includes an account of his or her academic progress, leadership, extracurricular activity, and contributions to university life. Such a letter is not simply a list but an expression of the student’s intellectual and social development. In addition to this letter, the student must ask two faculty members to submit letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the Committee. All materials are due by October 15, but may be sent at any point during the summer or early fall.
