Attention!

Please be warned that Wells Mountain Foundation is NOT in a partnership with the Global Generosity Network. If you are contacted by them, informing you that you have received a scholarship from them “in partnership with WMF”, we have nothing to do with it. The fee they ask you to submit is probably a scam. WMF never charges a fee to applicants or finalists in order to apply for or to receive scholarship funds.

The Empowerment Through Education program application period is currently closed. Applications from qualified applicants will be accepted again from December 1, 2015 to April 1, 2016. There are two ways to apply, online on our website and also by printing out an application and mailing it to our office. Continue on to our Empowerment Through Education Program page for more information.

About Wells Mountain Foundation

WMF was founded in 2005 to provide funding and support in the areas of education, literacy and the arts, primarily in the developing world. WMF provides support to individuals and families in need of assistance as a result of economic challenges, and in particular, extreme poverty. WMF is 501(c)(3) non-profit and all donations are fully tax deductible.

Our WMF Empowerment Through Education Scholarship Program has grown from just one scholarship in Ghana in 2005 to 63 current WMF Scholars in 2015. Our scholars hail from 21 countries, including Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Sudan, South Sudan, Cameroon, Uganda, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Zambia, Liberia, Nepal, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Twenty three new 2014 WMF Scholars were chosen from over 1600 applications in August of 2014. More info on our Scholarships and Our Scholars.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship for the 2015-2016 academic year, the application can be found on our Scholarships page. Please review the Empowerment Through Education Application Frequently Asked Questions guide to determine if you are eligible before applying.

Our Literacy Program provides books to libraries and programs in Haiti, Ghana, and Nepal. Generally, books are supplied by WMF at no cost. For other non-profit organizations, we offer our services and experience in purchasing and delivering books, sometimes with the organizations only paying for the wholesale cost of the books. Read more about the Literacy Program.

In the area of the arts, we have provided art supplies and support in Nepal and Ghana, and this year in Uganda and Kenya. Read more about the Arts Program.

Because of our affiliation with the YMCA d’Haiti, WMF undertook a major program of support after the January 12, 2010 Haiti earthquake. We organized a massive clothing drive with the help of donors, volunteers, and companies here in the United States and ultimately shipped to Haiti twelve containers of clothing and supplies. We also raised enough money to purchase the containers, and the materials necessary to convert the containers into YMCA community centers after they were emptied.
