Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grants

For college students, an unexpected financial setback can be a major disruption on the path to a degree. The Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grants are designed to help U.S. military veterans who are enrolled in postsecondary education meet their household expenses, ensuring that they are able to stay in school without creating undue financial hardship for themselves or their families. 

The Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant Program makes immediate grants available to eligible veterans who are pursuing a postsecondary degree, and who experience unexpected financial difficulties that might cause them to drop out of school. One-time grants up to $1,000 will be awarded on an ongoing basis while funds are available; grant amounts will be determined based on the cost of the emergency need.
