University of Wyoming Institutional Scholarships

 

The University of Wyoming (UW) sets aside $150,000 each year to aid former GEAR UP Wyoming students in their pursuit of a bachelor's degree at UW.  The UW GEAR UP Institutional Scholarship criteria include specific requirements and are awarded to students who have demonstrated regular participation in the GEAR UP program. Eligibility requirements will be verified by each applicant's host GEAR UP site.

The UW GEAR UP (GU) Institutional Scholarship application must be submitted by the April 1 (fall) or November 1 (spring) deadlines. The scholarship application opening date and deadline is determined by the semester you will begin attending college. Please see below for details on when the scholarship opens for applicants.

  Scholarship Begins   Application Opens   Application Deadline
  Fall Semester   November 2   April 1
  Spring Semester   April 2   November 1
  

 

 

Please follow the steps below to apply for the UW GEAR UP Institutional Scholarship.

1. Apply for admission to the University of Wyoming.

2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 15. Complete the FAFSA verification process by April 1. 

3. Complete the UW GEAR UP Institutional Scholarship Application.

4. Watch your email for messages concerning your aid and make sure you file the proper paperwork, when requested, before any deadlines pass.

Students only need to apply for the scholarship once. There is no need to reapply each year; however, there are continued eligibility requirements that are reviewed each semester.

Continued Eligibility Requirements:

  • File your FAFSA by April 1 each year. Priority will be given to FAFSA applications completed by March 1 each year. Any verification requirements must be completed by June 1.

  • Maintain continuous enrollment (fall/spring)

  • Maintain good academic standing as defined by your institution

  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined by your institution

  • Complete a bachelor’s degree within 6 years (maximum 12 full/part-time semesters)

  • Maintain current contact/mailing and current attending institution information with the GEAR UP Wyoming office

 

Wyoming Community College Institutional Scholarships

 

These scholarships are awarded to former GEAR UP Wyoming students who are attending Wyoming community colleges. Most community college partner institutions have funds they award specifically to former GEAR UP Wyoming students. Scholarship eligibility criteria are determined by the individual community college. 

Please check the links below for individual GEAR UP scholarship eligibility requirements at the community college you plan to attend.

Casper College
Central Wyoming College
Eastern Wyoming College

Western Wyoming Community College

 

GEAR UP Wyoming Federal Scholarships

 

Federal dollars were placed into a trust fund to provide former GEAR UP Wyoming students, served under the 2005-2011 grant, scholarships to attend the University of Wyoming or a Wyoming community college. The Federal Scholarship criteria include specific requirements and are awarded to students who have demonstrated regular participation in the high school GEAR UP program prior to November 2011. From 2016 onward, there are very few students that are likely to meet all the eligibility requirements for the federal scholarship. If you believe you may qualify for the federal scholarship please contact Mel at mowen@uwyo.edu or 307-766-6723 for more information on eligibility requirements and the application procedure.


The federal scholarship deadline is determined by which semester you will begin attending college.

  Scholarship Begins   Application Opens   Application Deadline
  Fall Semester   November 2   April 1
  Spring Semester   April 2   November 1

  

 

 
Please contact our office well in advance of the deadline in order to provide adequate time for an application to be made, if your eligibility is confirmed.

 

Hathaway Scholarships

 

The Hathaway Scholarship program provides merit- and need-based awards to eligible students. GEAR UP works with students to prepare and encourage them to meet the criteria set by the Hathaway program. 

For more information, please check the Hathaway Scholarship Information.

 

Daniels Fund Scholarship

 

GEAR UP Wyoming helps students apply for the prestigious Daniels Fund Scholarship. Daniels Fund Scholarships are awarded in the spring to graduating high school seniors and are supplemental after other federal, state, institutional, and private financial aid and scholarships. Students may use their scholarship at any two- or four-year accredited, nonprofit college or university in the United States with an intention to complete a bachelor's degree.

For more information, please check the Daniels Fund Scholarship website.
