Wells Mountain Initiative works to create social change through education and community building by providing bright young people in the developing world with student scholarships and skills training, building a network of grassroots leaders who are catalyzing community transformation.

WMI has provided 479 scholars in 47 countries with scholarships,
professional development and skill building. Here’s how:

WMI provides financial and social support to undergraduate students obtaining degrees in community-oriented fields, and encourages them to be the agents of change in their own communities, nations and the world.

Although our Scholars program stands at the forefront of our mission, our special interest projects play an integral role in WMI’s vision for impact. Our legacy programs include community projects in Haiti and a global literacy program.
