Organizations offering scholarships and resources to help student obtain scholarships have ask that the University of Wyoming make their scholarships and information available to our student. The University of Wyoming is providing this information to students as a courtesy and as such we reserve the right to display, not display, or remove any information at our discretion without notification.  Information is only accurate as the date it was received by UW.

Additional Resources in finding scholarships

  • Your high school counselor - scholarships offered through community or regional organizations are typically promoted through your high school counseling office. Most offices have a scholarship book or bulletin board.
  • The American Legion publishes a booklet titled "Need a Lift?" This is an excellent guide to many types of financial aid resources including federal, state, institutional, and private aid. It may be ordered for $3 plus $3 for shipping and handling by writing to the following address: National Emblem Sales, 700 North Pennsylvania Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
  • Civic, religious and community organizations such as Elks, Rotary, Moose, Odd Fellows, American Legion, and your local/home church.
  • Your parent's place of employment.
  • Large corporations such Coca-Cola, Clairol, Tylenol and Orville Redenbacher.
  • Professional organizations within your chosen career field such as the Business and Professional Women's Association or Soroptimists.

Beware of Scholarship Scams

Most scholarships do not require a fee to apply so If you have to pay to apply for a scholarship, it is most likely a scam. If at any time you question the legitimacy of a scholarship, please check with the Better Business Bureau or the Financial Aid Office regarding the validity of a scholarship "company."

Outside Donor Scholarships Policy

If you are awarded a scholarship from another organization, UW does not always know how that organization will disburse your award to you. We prefer that you have the organization notify us of your scholarship and send the funds to us so that we can combine and issue them to you with your other aid, if you have any.
