grad caps

The deadline for the Wesley Financial Group Scholarship Program is quickly approaching.

All eligible and interested applicants are urged to apply by the deadline on Sept. 17, at 11:59 p.m. in order to be considered. 

Wesley Financial Group LLC, formed in 2011, is a leader in helping clients cancel their misleading timeshare agreements and walk away from related debt. The company is providing five scholarships valued at $2,000 each to college and university students in the U.S. that have lost a parent or are on their own with financial strain.

Wesley Financial Group founder and CEO Chuck McDowell knows how difficult it is for many post-secondary students in the current economic climate, with tuitions rising and student debt hitting record levels. He also knows that finances can be especially tough for single-parent households, as McDowell himself experienced this after losing his wife and mother of his two boys. He was raised by a single mother himself and knows first-hand the barriers that come with a single income. 

“This is personal for me and I’m so glad our company can give back to those in need," McDowell said. 

All applicants are asked to write a 500-word essay detailing their chosen path of study and future career goals and how a scholarship would help them succeed. They can also include how they are helping others through any volunteer efforts. Applicants must also submit proof of enrollment. Applications will be reviewed by a committee that will make the final selections.
