The Wells Mountain Foundation, through the Empowerment through Education (ETE) program, provides undergraduate scholarships to developing country nationals to study in their home country or a neighboring country.
The Foundation believes in the power and importance of community service; therefore, all scholarship recipients are required to volunteer for a minimum of 100 hours a year.
It is up to the recipient to choose as to which institution, either in their home country or in another developing country, they would like to attend.
