2013 Wells Mountain Foundation Scholarship

Wednesday, January 9, 2013
The Wells Mountain Foundation is a public charitable foundation based in Bristol, Vermont,
USA, which has been approved under the United States Internal Revenue Service under Section
501(c)(3). 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 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. Applications must be
received by April 1, 2013 to be considered for the 2013-2014 school year. 

We highly recommend that you review the FAQ for Scholars section on our website before you
complete the application (see www.wellsmountainfoundation.org). Incomplete applications
will be discarded unread. Applicants will be notified if they have been selected as a WMF Scholar
by approximately August 1, 2013, with funding for the first semester by September 1.
