Applications for the more than forty College of Education scholarships are no longer required. There are two exceptions: the Superior Student In Education Scholarship and the Leona S. and Jeanette Heptner Schoiarship. Application directions for those two scholarships can be found elsewhere on this page. Following the fall semester add/drop deadline, the University of Wyoming’s Office of Student Financial Aid (307-766-3790 or http://uwadmnweb.uwyo.edu/SFA/) provides the College of Education Scholarship Committee with reports containing the names of Teacher Education majors (new and returning) who meet the awarding criteria, as set forth by the donor(s), in order for the Committee to match students with scholarships. Students who have been awarded College of Education Scholarships will be notified by letter.
Because many College of Education scholarships specify financial need as a criterion, we strongly recommend that you complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Please click here for the form.
If additional information is required for awarding purposes, the College of Education Scholarship Committee will contact those students who are under consideration for a scholarship. In all cases, students awarded College of Education scholarship(s) will be required to write a letter of thanks to the donor(s) before any awarded funds will be released.
