Scholarships for High Achievers

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences awards annual scholarships separately from those awarded by the UW Office of Admissions and Office of Student Financial Aid. Engineering scholarships are competitive and based on academic merit. Neither the UW Office of Student Financial Aid nor the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences requires a separate application for most scholarships. Some university-level scholarships do require additional applications and/or may have alternate application deadlines. All students admitted to the University of Wyoming by Dec. 1 are considered automatically for scholarships for the next academic year.   


External Scholarships and Fellowships

Several off-campus organizations offer scholarship opportunities to UW students. The selection process is handled by the individual organizations. Application criteria and deadlines for these scholarships vary. As we receive information on new off-campus scholarship opportunities, we will post them on this page. Check back often for updates.
