We are proud to announce that Scholarship America is the 2017 REF Charities designee! The Railroad Financial Corporation chooses an annual charity beneficiary of its Rail Equipment Finance Conference. This year, donations will be made to Scholarship America’s Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant Program — and REF will match the first $15,000 in donations!
The Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant Program was created by Wells Fargo in conjunction with Scholarship America in 2015. Too often, an emergency medical expense, car repair or childcare cost threatens to derail students’ pursuit of a degree. To help eliminate this crisis, the Veterans Emergency Grant Program provides emergency grants up to $1,000 to eligible veterans who are enrolled in postsecondary education — and who experience unexpected financial difficulties that might cause them to drop out of school.
Your support of this program helps our military veterans stay in school when a crisis strikes. Click here to donate today!
