Wheels, LLC. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited, not-for-profit, two- or four-year college or university of the student’s choice.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals.
