The Russian, a two-time champion at Roland Garros, was informed that her request for entry into the forthcoming grand slam following her recent return from a drugs ban had been rejected on Tuesday.
With a world ranking above 200, she missed out on a place in French Open qualifying but has done enough for a spot in the Wimbledon qualifier.
Sharapova was this week told that she would not be granted a wildcard invite to the French Open which starts later this month.
However she has been granted a wild card for the Aegon Open in Birmingham in the build up to Wimbledon.
"I have already started getting treatment on the injury I sustained a few days ago in Rome, and will begin my preparation as soon I get better", Sharapova said.
Also, there will be 12 further wildcards for the qualifying events which will be confirmed ahead of the tournament, with these likely to be offered to eligible British players.
But the misdemeanour has not stopped other, smaller tournaments adding the Russian to their invitation list, including the Aegon Classic in June.More news: Dying elephant gets fatal revenge on hunter

At the Italian Open this week, she retired in her second-round match after injuring her left thigh.
"Now that Maria has earned direct entry into Wimbledon qualifying, we want to give British tennis fans the chance to see her compete on grass here in Britain beforehand".
Sharapova's performance at the tournament in Stuttgart returned her to the WTA rankings, from which she was excluded last October. 'When we were asked by her agent to provide a wildcard, we requested a two-year commitment because we wanted to maximise her appeal, ' said Downey.
Rather than face a similar fate at Wimbledon, Sharapova will now attempt to get through three rounds of qualifying to book a place in the 128-person main draw in July.
Ironically, the last time Sharapova was forced to qualify for an event was at the Birmingham tournament in 2003.
The tennis player was initially set to serve a two-year suspension for violating anti-doping regulations starting January 26, 2016.
On Thursday, Sharapova, who won the Birmingham event in 2004 and 2005, expressed her gratitude.
