Scholarship America and Wells Fargo are pleased to announce the launch of the Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship and Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant programs, designed to fill funding gaps to help veterans complete the postsecondary education or training they need to return to — and succeed in — civilian life and work. These programs can make a significant impact on students across America, and we need your help to spread the word.

The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program provides scholarships up to $10,000 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 ensure that recipients can focus on completing their degree, these scholarships will be renewable, and award amounts will grow by $1,000 each year. 

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 will ensure that recipients are able to stay in school without creating undue financial hardship for themselves or their families.

If you know of alumni who pursued a military career after graduation, they can start taking advantage of these programs right away! Applications for the Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship are open until February 29; applications for emergency grants will stay open on an ongoing basis while funds are available. Both programs are accessible via take a moment to share the link with veterans, military families and relevant student organizations in your community. Thank you!
