Veteran Scholarships open until end of Feb.

Wells Fargo in partnership with Scholarship America.

Two different programs – 2017-veteran-scholarship-flyer.

The second is intended to assist veteran students who have run in to an unexpected short term  issue that might hamper their immediate ability to stay in school.

 Wells Fargo’s emergency grants ensure veterans already enrolled in postsecondary education are able to stay in school without creating undue financial hardship for themselves or their families. Through the Wells Fargo Emergency Grant Program:

• Immediate, small grants are available to eligible veterans who are enrolled in postsecondary education and experience unexpected financial difficulties that might cause them to drop out of school.

• Grants are available for a one-time distribution up to $1,000 based on the cost of the emergency need.

• Grants are available on an ongoing basis while funds are available. To learn more about the program, eligibility requirements, and to apply, visit: ScholarshipAmerica.org/WellsFargoVets

Deadline for application is the end of February.   Last year when we did this, some of the funds ran out early, apply now!
