This information is for the Fall 2023/Spring 2024 academic year. Unless otherwise
noted, awards listed are for the academic year and not by semester.
The University of Wyoming is proud to offer the Brown and Gold Commitment to eligible first-time entering international freshman students. This commitment is a merit-based financial pledge determined by a student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA), and it has two levels: $7,500 and $4,500. It is offered as a placeholder and will be funded with individual scholarships that are made possible through the generosity of Foundation donors and/or other institutional aid. Funding of this commitment is contingent on the completion of the general application and any applicable recommended applications within WyoScholarships.
The Brown and Gold Commitment normally cannot be combined with any additional institutional scholarship aid, including those made possible by the University of Wyoming Foundation.
Please note: All University of Wyoming financial awards are only available to eligible admits. The awards are subject to available funding and the approval of the UW Board of Trustees; they reserve the right to change said rates at any time.

Effective Fall 2023 the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will consider the final cumulative unweighted high school/secondary school GPA for new first-time entering international students for a potential increase in commitment award level. To be considered, official transcripts must be received no later than the first day of class of your incoming semester. This applies to student who have confirmed enrollment by the above deadline. Increases are subject to available funding.
The Brown and Gold Commitment is renewable for up to 8 semesters (4 academic years), or up to the first bachelor's degree, whichever comes first.
