Current & Transfer Scholarships

Honors Program

College Transfer and Current Honors Student Awards

Transfer students are also eligible for Honors Program Scholarships. In addition, students transferring from Wyoming community colleges who intend to major in American Studies may apply for a Kuehn Scholarship, which provides an award in the amount of resident tuition for a maximum of two years. 

Link to Apply for Spring 2017 Scholarships : TBA

Academic Year 2017-2018 Scholarships applications will open during the spring semester: TBA.

Dr. Scholl Foundation Honors Scholarships

Non-resident and non-traditional students who are first-time freshmen or transfer students will be considered for the Dr. Scholl Honors Scholarship when they make application for a Scholar's Stipend. These scholarships are designed for outstanding students who want the benefits of an Honors education at the University of Wyoming. The number and amount of these scholarship awards will vary. Thanks to the generosity of the Dr. Scholl Foundation, we have been able to award four scholarships for $1,500 each in recent years.

Lucille Schopf Guy Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship is intended for students who are graduates of Wyoming high schools or for students transferring from Wyoming community colleges.

 

Tillman E. and Lucille W. Boyd Academic Opportunity Scholarships

The Boyd Scholarship enables students in the University Honors Program to take advantage of special academic opportunities.

These scholarships are designed to enable students to participate in research and educational opportunities, including study abroad, special summer courses on and off campus, internships, student exchanges, and other programs which contribute significantly to a student's intellectual development. Because these are scholarships, the activity proposed must earn academic credit toward your degree.

To be eligible, a student must be a participant in the University Honors Program in good standing, and the activity must produce academic credits.

The Boyd Scholarship will open in November.  Students, please watch your email for the application announcement.  The application link is currently broken.
