Scholarship America/Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program

The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program is designed to help meet the needs of veterans after military benefits and other grants and scholarships have been utilized. The scholarship program will award renewable scholarships for up to $7,000 per year to honorably-discharged veterans or spouses of disabled veterans who are high school or GED graduates and who have served in the United States military. Qualified applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent and plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate or graduate (first Master's degree) study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the 2017-2018 academic year. Each award renewal will increase by $1,000 over the previous year to encourage program completion. Visit www.scholarsapply.org/wellsfargoveterans for more information and to apply.
