Scholarships Awarded in WyoScholarships

WyoScholarships is the UW scholarship system. Completing the General Application each year allows students  to be considered for a wide range of scholarship opportunities as we use your answers from this application, along with your student records. After submitting the General Application, you may also be prompted to complete a Conditional Application which may be required for scholarships in your major/department.

Students who have been awarded a first-year or transfer Commitment are required to complete the General Application each year to fulfill your respective Commitment.

Continuing students without a Commitment must complete the General Application each year to be considered for most scholarship opportunities.

Visit the website for more information on how to renew your UW Commitment or Scholarship aid.

Complete the General Application and apply for a variety of scholarship opportunities by following the below steps:

  • Log into WyoScholarships

  • Click the "Sign In" button in the top right corner

  • Sign in with your UW Username and Password

  • If you are a first-time user, complete the general application questions when prompted and click "Finish and Submit" when you have completed them.

  • You can now view all our offered scholarships by going to Opportunities > Ours or Opportunities > Recommended, and from there you can click "Show Filters" to filter by your College or Department.

  • All of the scholarships for the selected college/department will display.



If you are selected to receive a scholarship within WyoScholarships, here are some important things to know:

  • You will be notified via your UW email to accept your scholarship offer. We strongly encourage you to complete a donor thank you letter if prompted to express gratitude to those who made this scholarship possible.

  • Scholarship eligibility rules may vary dependent on the individual scholarship, which is outlined in the WyoScholarships description. You must remain qualified to receive the scholarship. If an enrollment requirement is not listed, the university standard will apply (minimum of 12 credit hours for undergraduate and 9 credit hours for most graduate programs). The administering college/department may use their own discretion should selected students not be enrolled full-time.


External Scholarships

External scholarships are developed and funded by organizations external to UW. They’re available to the public and can potentially help students cover the costs of their education and education-related expenses. Student eligibility rules are created by the organization offering the scholarship and can depend on many factors. If you are a student who has been awarded an external scholarship or are a donor/organization that is funding an external scholarship, please review the External Scholarships page for more information.
