Scholarship and Financial Resources

Information about available scholarships

The Financial Aid Office at UW hosts a convenient online tool for finding institutional scholarships. Sign in to WyoScholarships to see what is available.

You are encouraged to also speak with your academic advisor or department staff about scholarships specific to your major and area of interest. In addition to department scholarships, your advisor may be able to recommend financial support from entities related to your field of study, such as alumni or businesses.

There are a number of outside scholarships available for international students. Because they are often hard to find, not everyone applies even when there is money still available. ISS recommends that you apply for as many as as possible.

Donate to the Karma Emergency Fund

The Karma Fund was started up by UW students just over a decade ago after one of their fellow international students was hit by a car and suffered incredible injuries.  The fund helps to offset some of the medical bills for international students who have had medical emergencies so that they can remain in school.  Your donation will directly impact the ability of international students at UW to continue their education in Laramie as they recover from a medical emergency.

Donate through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account) by scanning the QR code below, drop off cash or check at any UniWyo Credit Union location (note: Karma Fund), or you can do a member-to-member transfer online if you are a member of UniWyo Credit Union.  If you are inclined, you can share this QR code to encourage others to donate.

Thank you, in advance, for your generous gift!
