Supporting veterans employment through scholarships
Wells Fargo supports the Veterans Employment Initiative at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C., which provides scholarships and career services.
When former Marine Irisa Grimes returned from duty in Iraq, she found it difficult to find a job. Then she learned of a Wells Fargo-sponsored scholarship at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C., that would enable her to start school right away.
Wells Fargo has made two grants totaling $300,000 to the college’s Veterans Employment Initiative, which provides scholarships and job search assistance to military veterans and their families.
