Scholarship America and Wells Fargo are pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship, and Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant programs, designed to help veterans complete the postsecondary education or training they need to return to — and succeed in — civilian life and work. Since 2016, Wells Fargo and Scholarship America have awarded 72 scholarships and 135 emergency grants.
The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program DPGazette.com/wfvetscholarship provides scholarships up to $7,000 per year, to fill gaps for veterans and the spouses of disabled veterans after military benefits and other grants and scholarships have been utilized. To help recipients focus on completing their degree, these scholarships are renewable, and award amounts will grow by $1,000 each year. The deadline to apply is February 28.
Wells Fargo’s emergency grant program DPGazette.com/wfvetgrant helps veterans already enrolled in postsecondary education meet their household expenses when faced with unexpected financial setbacks. Ranging up to $1,000, these immediate, one-time grants are designed to keep recipients in school without creating an undue financial hardship. Both programs are accessible via scholarshipamerica.org/wellsfargoveterans.
