Wells Mountain Foundation Scholarships:

The purpose of the Foundation is primarily to support programs and individuals in developing nations or other situations of extreme poverty.

Each year the Foundation’s Empowerment Through Education program provides support to a number of 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 and provide copies of all semester reports and 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.

The foundation does not require the applicant to pay an admission or processing fee or to buy a number to have the application reviewed.
