Kickstart Wyoming’s Tomorrow Scholarship is an exciting new statewide program offering up to $1,800 per semester toward tuition at Wyoming’s eight community colleges and the University of Wyoming.
The new state-funded scholarship program is for those age 24 and older who want to pursue degrees or certificates, or who need to take more classes to finish degrees they already started.
Kickstart Wyoming’s Tomorrow Scholarship was created and funded by the Wyoming Legislature to help working adults obtain the skills and education necessary to reenter the workforce, move up in their current careers or pursue new career paths. Those eligible could receive up to $1,800 per semester if they are enrolled in 12 or more credit hours, and students are eligible for up to four full-time academic terms.
“This is a great opportunity for Wyomingites to finish their degrees and pursue certificates needed to achieve their career goals,” UW President Ed Seidel says. “We appreciate the Legislature’s vision in creating this program, which certainly will make a difference for individuals but also provide a boost for the state’s economy.”
Scholarship funds are limited, so all awards are dependent on funding availability. Beyond the age requirement, applicants must be Wyoming residents, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid and register for the Wyoming at Work program through the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. This program provides access to information and career resources to assist in the job search process.
