Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program

Wells Fargo is strongly invested in supporting our nation’s veterans, and that support includes financial assistance as they pursue their higher education goals. The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program helps fill in financial aid gaps for veterans and the spouses of service-disabled veterans, after military benefits and other grants and scholarships have been utilized.  

To apply, you must be an honorably discharged veteran of the United States military (including Reserves and National Guard), or the spouse or widow of a service-disabled veteran, and you must be a high school or GED graduate. The program will award renewable scholarships of up to $5,000 toward full-time undergraduate or graduate (first master’s degree) study. Awards will be determined by financial need and consideration of academic performance, work experience, leadership, community service and challenges to completing a postsecondary program.  

Scholarship awards are renewable for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s/master’s degree is completed, whichever comes first.
