Winning one of these scholarships, in addition to the financial reward, brings prestige and recognition to you and the University of Wyoming. Regardless of outcome, though, going through the process will help you in several ways:

  • You will reflect on which academic and life experiences have been most meaningful to you.
  • You will learn how to write effective and persuasive personal and professional project essays and how to present yourself confidently during interviews.

All of these experiences will help you to apply for graduate schools, interview for jobs, and develop leadership skills. Whether you win a scholarship or not, applying is a valuable experience.
