Scholarship America has worked with Wells Fargo, who committed $1 million over the next four years, to establish a scholarship program for people with disabilities. Applications for the new program have just launched and we want to make sure this information gets to the right people.
The Wells Fargo Scholarship Program for People with Disabilities is designed to help people with disabilities obtain the education or training necessary to succeed in the career path of their choice.
To apply, applicants must:
- 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).
- Be high school seniors or graduates who are planning to enroll (or who are already enrolled) in full- or half-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States for the 2017-2018 academic year.
- Have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent.
The deadline to apply is January 17, 2017 or until 700 applications are submitted, whichever comes first.
