Wells Fargo People with Disabilities and Veterans Programs

Please help to spread the word! 


Scholarship America and Wells Fargo are pleased to announce the 2023 Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship, Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant and Wells Fargo Scholarships for People with Disabilities programs.  


The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program provides renewable scholarships up to $5,000 per year, to fill gaps for eligible veterans, their spouses and widows after military benefits and other grants and scholarships have been utilized. The deadline to apply is April 10, 2023. 


Wells Fargo's Veterans 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. Applications will be accepted for this program beginning March 17, 2023.


Finally, the Wells Fargo Scholarship Program for People with Disabilities provides renewable scholarships up to $2,500 for full-time students and up to $1,250 for half-time students who have an identified disability (defined as someone who has, or considers themselves to have, a long-term or recurring issue that impacts one or more major life activity). Applications for this program are open through April 10, 2023


As a Dollars for Scholars volunteer, you're in a unique position to reach out to veterans, students, mentors, organizations and supporters in your community. Please take a moment to share the links with those in your hometown to spread the word, so we can ensure they are aware of these opportunities to get the help they need.  


On behalf of everyone who stands to benefit from these scholarships and grants, we thank you!
