28th Annual Scholarship Reception and Auction



Join alumni and friends in Sheridan on Friday, April 17th for the UWAA 28th annual Scholarship Reception and Auction from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Historic Sheridan Inn (856 Broadway St.) presented by

The evening will include hors d’oeuvres and two drink tickets per person, silent and live auctions and a raffle. Cost to attend is $40 per UWAA member and $60 per nonmember. Please register by Tuesday, April 7 at

The theme for the evening is “A Night for the Students” as we come together to celebrate the UWAA scholarship program.

The UWAA provides scholarships to Wyoming students, out-of-state students, and undergraduate and graduate students. Since its inception in 1906, the UWAA scholarship program has grown steadily through its coordination of the Scholarship Club, named scholarships and the UW license plate program. Per academic year, approximately $232,000 is disbursed to nearly 130 students with awards ranging from one to four years.

 While proceeds from the scholarship reception and auction contribute to the funding of the scholarship program, it is also funded from private donations and the sale of UW license plates.

"Spring means spring football and the annual UWAA auction and reception. Last year’s gathering generated a record amount and a lot of enthusiasm for the attendees. The UWAA scholarships are only possible with our support and those scholarships are changing the future of students across our state and the county,” said UWAA Board President Mark Mader (B.S. ’71).

“The World Needs More Cowboys and one way you can help is by joining us at the annual auction and reception. Please register and join us in the fun.”
