Each year the Wells Mountain FoundationEmpowerment Through Education Scholarship program provides support to students as they pursue various educational objectives.Support is provided for post-secondary school (college, university, polytechnic,trade school).
Support is not provided for graduate degrees or study in the US, UK or other developed countries.
Financial support is primarily to cover the costs of the education itself and directly related expenses including books and supplies.
Scholarships are generally granted for the full period of study; however, recipients must maintain good grades, perform community service and provide copies of all semester reports and school grades as they are received. The scholarship can be discontinued at any time in the event of unsatisfactory performance.
The scholarship awards are determined by the Scholarship Committee of the Board of Directors of
the Wells Mountain Foundation and awarded once a year.
