Lander Student Awarded UW Outreach Scholarship

May 11, 2016

Heather Britain, of Lander, is among three recipients of the University of Wyoming Outreach School’s 2016 Edelweiss Fund Scholarship.

Britain is pursuing a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) in organizational leadership. The other winners are Amber Donais, of Mills, who is pursuing a master’s degree in social work, and Andrea Harrington, of Casper, who is working toward a Bachelor of Arts in psychology.

Britain works as an advocate assistant for Protection and Advocacy System Inc., a nonprofit provider of legally based advocacy services for persons with disabilities in the United States. She hopes to become an advocate when she receives her degree.

“I truly believe earning my B.A.S. in organizational leadership will open doors for me,” she says.

The Outreach School’s Edelweiss Fund Scholarship is available to part- or full-time students who are seeking UW degrees through the Outreach School -- including Outreach Credit Programs and UW-Casper -- and who demonstrate the promise of academic excellence. Priority is given to female, nontraditional, first-generation students who also are Wyoming residents and single mothers. The scholarship award period is for up to six years or until the completion of the degree.

Launched in 2008, the Edelweiss Fund is designed to make a difference for select UW Outreach School students by awarding scholarships for the duration of the recipients’ degree program.

The Outreach School delivers UW learning opportunities to Wyoming residents and those out of state.
