First-Time Student Commitments, Opportunities, and Scholarships

This information is for the academic year 2021-22.

Important Note for Students

To help accommodate the challenges students may be experiencing across the country this year, official ACT/SAT test scores will be optional for certain levels of the Cowboy Commitment if a student is unable to complete a test for the upcoming academic year. More information on no-test award amounts coming soon!

The Trustee Scholarship and Hathaway Scholarship awards will still require an ACT/SAT score.


The University of Wyoming is proud to offer a variety of opportunities for eligible incoming Wyoming resident first-time students. All opportunities are based on the student's academic achievements at the time of admission to UW.



Please note that UW's scholarships have deadlines and are subject to available funding.
