UW Alumni Association Scholarship Event April 21

February 8, 2017

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association’s (UWAA) 25th annual Scholarship Reception and Auction is 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 21, at the Kiwanis Community House in Cheyenne.

Proceeds from the evening help fund the UWAA Scholarship Program. The title sponsor of the event is Infinity Power and Controls.

UWAA provides scholarships to Wyoming students, out-of-state students, and undergraduate and graduate students. Within these scholarships, awards have been added to support Wyoming community college transfer students, nontraditional, U.S. military veterans and multicultural students. Recipients are selected based on criteria including academic excellence, leadership and extracurricular activities.

Since its inception in 1906, the UWAA Scholarship Program has grown steadily through its coordination of the Scholarship Club, Named Scholarships and the Wyoming License Plate Program. For academic year 2017-18, about $223,250 will be disbursed to 136 students, with awards ranging from one to four years.

While proceeds from the 25th annual Scholarship Reception and Auction help to fund the scholarship program, it also is funded from private donations and the sale of UW license plates in Wyoming.

The cost to attend the event is $40 for singles and $70 per couple. Price includes appetizers and two complimentary drink tickets for beer, wine or nonalcoholic beverages. Highlights of the evening are a silent and premium auction, a brief presentation from UWAA leadership, recognition of UWAA scholarship recipients and a raffle of a “Talk About Your Cowboy” bronze sculpture valued at $3,500. Attire for the evening is cowboy casual.

UW alumni and friends interested in attending or sponsoring the event can register online at or call the Alumni Office at (307) 766-4166. The deadline to register is Monday, April 10.
