Western Union has established the Western Union Global Scholarship Award Program to assist employees’ children who plan to pursue post-secondary education in a college program. This program is available to employees globally. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school of the student’s choice.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
Applicants to the Western Union Global Scholarship Award Program must be:
International and Canadian Students
(**Full-time study is defined as full-time enrollment for the entire upcoming academic year.)
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
