Why should I apply?

The process of applying for a nationally competitive scholarship offer benefits all. Winning a scholarship or fellowship brings prestige and recognition to you and the University of Wyoming, in addition to the financial reward.  But regardless of outcome the process will help you in several ways:

  • Purposed reflection upon which academic and life experiences have been most meaningful to you.

  • Development of effective and persuasive personal and professional project essays and how to present yourself confidently during interviews.

  • Opportunity to interact closely with faculty members who participate in the process.

These experiences will help prepare you for graduate schools, interview for jobs, and develop leadership skills. Whether you win a scholarship or not, applying is a valuable experience.
