Scholarship Opportunities

Scholarship opportunities open Sunday, November 15, 2020 for the 2021-22 Academic year and
close at midnight, March 15, 2021.
The following opportunities are only available through the
WyoScholarships program through the office of Scholarship and Financial Aid.
 All UWAA scholarships will assist in fulfilling the student’s University Commitment.    
                University Commitments are separate from the Hathaway Scholarship.                        
Students receiving a Trustees’ Scholars Award do not qualify for UWAA Scholarships.

APPLY-TO SCHOLARSHIPS: 

Most of our scholarship opportunities are “APPLY-TO,” requiring a separate application process through WyoScholarships, the University of Wyoming's scholarship system and open November 15, 2020. 

All Apply-To applications must be completed and submitted online.  Students may view all scholarship opportunities without having login information.  Students will only be able to apply for scholarships once they have been accepted to attend the University of Wyoming and will need their WyoWeb username and password to apply.
