Scholarships are gifts and do not need to be repaid. Generally, the University of Wyoming offers scholarships based on merit, financial need, or to specific student populations. Be sure to file your FAFSA by March 1st to be considered for financial need based awards in the following school year.
The University of Wyoming offers over one thousand different scholarships to accepted and current UW students through our Student Financial Aid Scholarships system. Simply sign in with your UW username and password to search and apply for scholarships. Please keep in mind that these scholarships have varying deadlines and requirements. Most scholarships do not require additional information and you will automatically be considered if you meet the criteria. Other scholarships require additional information that you can provide through this tool.
These scholarships applications must be submitted directly to the Student Financial Aid office and are not available in our online Student Financial Aid Scholarships system. The application forms are updated in January of each year.
Upon admission to UW, students are automatically considered for several scholarships awarded by the Office of Admissions. These scholarships include, but are not limited to Hathaway, Trustees' Scholars, Rocky Mountain Scholars, Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE), and the John W. Hoyt Scholarship.
Students should also check with their department of study for scholarship opportunities. While some of these scholarships are available in the Student Financial Aid Scholarships tool, many are only offered by the academic departments.
Many entities outside of UW offer scholarships to eligible students. Several of these resources are listed on our Non-UW Resources Scholarships page.
