Scholarship Opportunities


Scholarship opportunities open Friday, November 15, 2019 for the 2020-21 Academic year and

close at midnight, March 15, 2020.

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: 

Ten of our scholarship opportunities this year are “APPLY-TO,” requiring a separate application process through the WyoScholarships program through the office of Scholarships and Financial Aid and open November 15, 2019. 

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.
