In the spotlight: Nursing Alumni Scholarship


Are you interested in donating to student scholarships?...

...but don’t want to start your OWN scholarship? Here’s one scholarship you might want to support: the Nursing Alumni Scholarship. This fund was started in 1971 by alumni and organizations around the state to support nursing education. In 2001, a commitment was made to endow this scholarship. With the generosity of alumni from the FWWSON, this scholarship has been endowed since 2005. The investment earnings from this fund have provided an annual scholarship to a deserving student studying nursing.

To contribute to the Nursing Alumni Scholarship, please contact the UW Foundation as follows:

  • Phone:
    (307) 766-6300 or (888) 831-7795

  • Email:
    foundation@uwyo.edu

  • Mail:
    University of Wyoming Foundation
    Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center
    222 South 22nd Street
    Laramie, Wyoming 82070-5204

To be considered for this scholarship’s funding, students must...

...be accepted into one of the nursing programs, and should fill out the Nursing General Scholarship Application, including a 250-word letter describing their career goals, and explaining why they chose nursing as a major. Find the link to the application on the school's Scholarships and Financial Aid web page.
