The University of Wyoming Outreach School awards scholarships to help pay an Outreach School student’s living expenses while he or she pursues a college education. The Edelweiss Fund aims to ease the financial burden of attending school for a select student for the duration of his or her degree program, up to six years. This includes expenses such as rent, utilities, and childcare.
Awards are made to applicants who meet the stipend program criteria and demonstrate the promise of academic excellence. The Wyoming Women’s Foundation is a charitable organization that supports economic self-sufficiency and access to opportunities for women and girls in Wyoming by raising funds, making grants, and providing leadership. For information visit the Wyoming Women’s Foundation Web site at www.wywf.org.
Adult learners aged 25 and over who have been out of school for five years or more may find it easier to return to college with an Osher Reentry Scholarship award at the University of Wyoming (UW). The Osher foundation works to assist nontraditional, reentry students to complete their bachelor’s degrees and return to the workforce after graduation by awarding scholarship funds to colleges who have programs designed to support adult learners. Currently, Wyoming ranks 41st in the nation with only 23.6 percent of its population aged 24 years and older holding bachelor’s degrees.
Scholarships, funded by revenues from UW license plate sales, are available to undergraduates that fall into the categories of outreach students, non-traditional students, or fifth- or sixth-year students.
Scholarship Help, an outside source, provides information on how college funding works, the types of scholarships available, how to find them and how to apply for them. Visit this website for comprehensive information.
The UW Scholarship Book is an additional resource for university students, and visit the UW Office of Financial Aid Office's scholarship page for scholarship opportunities and application information.
