Scholars to Fellows

Carol and Ramon Tomé

Carol and Ramon Tomé, through the Tomé Foundation, have given generously to UW since 1995. In 2021, the Tomés supported UW’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources with a gift of $600,000 to create the Tomé Scholars to Fellows Program.

“We know that these scholars will make a difference in their field of study and that the university will empower them to do their best,” Ramon says. “Through our support and the university commitment, it is our intent to enable underrepresented students to achieve an education that will make a difference in the lives of others and their own.”

The Tomé Scholars to Fellows Program will be among UW’s premier scholarship opportunities for future leaders in the environment and natural resources sector. The scholarship supports women and/or minority students whose major area of educational focus is in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM), including medicine and nursing.

Tomé Scholars receive a full-ride scholarship and funding for one or more unique experiences such as international field courses and community service. Following graduation, these exceptional students become Tomé Fellows, a community of Tomé Scholars.

The Tomés’ previous contributions include a $1 million gift for the Carol and Ramon Tomé Student Admissions Center, located within the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center. Additionally, they have contributed to the Mick and Susie McMurry High Altitude Performance Center and the UW Alumni Association. In 2019, Carol retired as chief financial officer of Home Depot. During the global pandemic in 2020, she came out of retirement to serve as the CEO of UPS.

“Wyoming and the University of Wyoming are close and dear to us,” Ramon says. “The University of Wyoming is our alma mater, and Carol is a native Wyomingite. We are proud to provide an opportunity to continue the support of a diverse student body, one that is inclusive of all people, as the university has done in the past and continues to foster now.”
