Copy Of Letter Sent To All Former Contracted WWE Talents
“WWE is pleased to announce a Professional Development Program available to former WWE talent, and in some cases, their family members. The Professional Development Program aims to provide guidance and support beyond your tenure with WWE. The first two initiatives are: Financial Education and Continuing Education.
Money Management International (MMI) is the largest non-profit credit counseling agency in the country and has partnered with WWE to provide financial education to WWE talent. Please see enclosed packet for more information. The use of MMI is free for you and your immediate family members. We encourage you to reach out to MMI for assistance.
WWE is now offering financial scholarships to former WWE talent in the amount of $5,000 per calendar year to be used for obtaining a college degree or completing a certificate program. In order to receive this scholarship, a former WWE talent must apply for the three annual scholarships that are available. Please note–the deadline for the 2014 award is Friday, 8/1.
To keep former WWE talent up to date with WWE news, we will be distributing via email an “Alumni Newsletter” on a quarterly basis. The newsletter will include information on WWE news, archives, wellness, professional development and more.
Kristin Altman, the Talent Relations Manager, is heading these programs. The newsletter is on a sign-up basis with the company.
The only real change from what was reported is that the company is not awarding a $5,000 per semester scholarship to all talent that goes back to college or goes into a certification program as reported, but it is $5,000 per year to three different people picked out of the entire group that applies for it.”
