Students from Riverton and Casper are the recipients of the 2016-17 Wyoming Women’s Foundation-Edelweiss Opportunity Scholarship offered through the University of Wyoming Outreach School.
Kaylan Schilling, from Riverton, is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, and Andrea Harrington, from Casper, is working toward a Bachelor of Art degree in psychology. Each recipient will receive a $2,000 scholarship to assist with living and child care expenses.
The Wyoming Women’s Foundation-Edelweiss Opportunity Scholarship is available to part- or full-time students who are seeking UW degrees and taking classes through the Outreach School, including Outreach Credit Programs and UW-Casper. Recipients must be single parents who are juniors, seniors or graduate students, and demonstrate the promise of academic excellence.
The Wyoming Women’s Foundation-Edelweiss Opportunity Scholarship was funded through contributions from the Wyoming Women’s Foundation, the Edelweiss Fund and the state of Wyoming.
The Wyoming Women’s Foundation is a charitable organization that supports economic self-sufficiency and access to opportunities for women and girls in Wyoming by raising funds, making grants and providing leadership. The Edelweiss Fund was created to significantly assist select UW Outreach students as they complete their degrees.For more information, call the UW Outreach School at (307) 766-4300.
