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. Also make sure the donor specifies whether to issue the scholarship all at once or in two payments. If they do not specify, we will split the amount in half and issue it at the beginning of each semester if the amount is greater than $1000; if not, the full amount will be loaded to the current semester. We'd like the funds from your donor agency by August 1.
They can mail checks to:
UW Student Financial Aid
1000 E University Ave
Laramie, WY 82071
Please be sure they include your name, W# (or other identifying information), semester(s) of use.
If a donor requests a financial needs analysis or verification of student awards, a release of information (provided by the donor or click here) must be completed by the student.
Note for athletes: If you receive an outside donor scholarship you must complete a form through the Athletics Department for verification of the award process.
