Financial Aid at the University of Wyoming

At this time, there are no scholarships for individuals with disabilities to purchase assistive technology at UW.  However, financial aid awards may be adjusted on an individual basis.  The student will need to set up an appointment with a financial aid officer to determine eligibility.

Grant Proposals

The independent living centers will work with someone to write a grant proposal for a specific device. Students would most likely need to work through the independent living center in their home town and not through the one in Laramie.

Students can also access a database of national scholarships and apply online.  Fastweb requires students to sign-up for a free membership, as well as provide personal information, in order to access the database.
