Leona S. and Jeanette Heptner Scholarship

The Heptner Scholarship is awarded to elementary education majors who have completed at least two years of undergraduate study or graduate students. in the College of Education. Financial need is a consideration (please note: FAFSA is REQUIRED). Preference is given first to residents of Campbell County,  then Wyoming residents from outside of Campbell County, and finally out-of-state students. Scholarship amounts vary and are awarded each spring for the following academic year. Submission of application materials is via UW's WyoScholarships system. NOTE: Because this is a FAFSA-driven, needs-based scholarship, students will not see the Heptner Scholarship in the WyoScholarships system until early March, when federal needs guidelines are issued. Applications must be submitted to WyoScholarships by 5 p.m. Friday, March 25. For details on required application elements visit the Heptner description page.
