The Cowboy Commitment

students walk across campus
The University of Wyoming wants students from the Cowboy State to know that college is within reach. We are proud to introduce the Cowboy Commitment, a financial pledge that benefits incoming first-year students from Wyoming who are beginning college in fall 2020.

Our financial commitment to you depends upon your ACT/SAT scores and unweighted high school GPA, and has four levels: $500, $1,500, $3,500 and $6,500. This financial commitment is initially funded through the generosity of Foundation donors and if necessary will be supplemented by other institutional aid. To receive this commitment you are required to complete the General Application and any applicable recommended applications within WyoScholarships. See the below grid to determine what level of commitment you may be eligible for:
