Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship and Emergency Grant Programs – Veterans and Spouses Only

The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship and Emergency Grant Programs

Scholarship America and Wells Fargo are pleased to announce the launch of the 2018 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. We need your help to spread the word.

The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program 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 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 undue financial hardship.
