Scholarships

UW Alumni Association

 

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association provides scholarships to Wyoming students, out-of-state students, and undergraduate and graduate students.  Within these scholarships, awards have been added to support Wyoming community college transfer students, non-traditional, US Veterans and multicultural students. Recipients are selected based on criteria including academic excellence, leadership and extracurricular activities.

Since its inception in 1906, the UWAA scholarship program has grown steadily through its coordination of the Scholarship Club, Named Scholarships and the Wyoming License Plate Program.  Per academic year, approximately $232,000 is disbursed to nearly 145 students with awards ranging from one to four years. 

Donors have found giving to scholarships is a great way to directly help students achieve their educational goals, as contributions are restricted to scholarship expenditures.  The UWAA is proud to administer the scholarship program to invest in the legacy of UW students to carry the torch of UW Pride, knowledge, and innovation forward to future generations.  

Congratulations to the 2017-18 Scholarship Awardees!

I was extremely honored to have received this scholarship.  My parents both attended UW and I have grown up listening to the talk about Wyoming.  They have told me what a great place it was to live and they believe the university of Wyoming is the best college in the world.
My grandfather also went to the University of Wyoming.  I am so proud to be continuing the family tradition and be a third generation "Cowboy"!
