Veterans Financial Resources

In State Tuition for non-resident Veterans

Due to a new state law, qualifying nonresident veterans can now attend the University of Wyoming at the resident rate.  For more information please see the staff at the Veterans Services Center, or see Sara Morris in the Financial Aid office.  You may also read more about this in the UW press release.

Financial aid is an important obstacle that college students face.  Student veterans are no exception especially if you are not a resident of the state and have to pay out of state tuition.  The VA has many different programs that help pay for school but sometimes that is not enough.  The Veterans Services Center can help.  At the Veterans Services Center we have information of the different VA education benefits as well as scholarship information for veterans going to school.  If we cannot answer your question we will direct you to the resources that will answer your question.  For more information on University of Wyoming financial aid resources please use the link.

The Veterans Services Center also provides work study positions to qualified students.  To learn how to qualify for a work study position please follow this link to the VA work study criteria page.  To apply for a work-study position at the University of Wyoming Veterans Services Center please see the Veterans Services Center staff for an application.

The American Legion Husted-Pendelton Post 14 Laramie, Wyoming is offering a scholarship for post 9/11 veterans attending the University of Wyoming.  The scholarship application can be picked up in the Veterans Services Center in Knight Hall room 241.

The Michael O'Neill Banking scholarship is available for veterans attending the banking program in the College of Business.  The scholarship is for $1000 and applicants must be recommended by faculty members.  For more information contact Sherrill Schaffer in the College of Business.
