Learn and Return Loan Payment Program

The Van Wert County Foundation’s Learn and Return Student Loan Payment Program is an opportunity for current or previous Van Wert County residents who demonstrate a desire to live and work in the county. In this competitive scholarship process, The Foundation will pay up to $30,000 of an applicant’s student loans over a three-year period, if the applicant lives and works in Van Wert County. Applicants must have student debt in their name, an accredited degree or certificate, and must demonstrate a desire or ability to live and work in Van Wert County.
