Wilkinson has yet to establish himself at The Britannia Stadium, making just one appearance this term in the Carling Cup.
The First Division side hope the 19-year-old's stint in the Conference will aid his development, in a similar way to young team-mate Gareth Owen's recent move away from the club.
Stoke's director of football John Rudge feels the spell at Telford will be ideal for Wilkinson and hinted the deal could be extended beyond four weeks.
"Andy will initially go to Telford for a month and we think he'll benefit from the first team football," Rudge told the club's website.
"Gareth Owen came back a better player after his loan spell with Tiverton and now has been called up to the Welsh Under-20 squad. We hope the same happens with Wilkinson.
"Andy is a good player but he needs a bit more experience and we hope he gets that with Telford."
