- About UW
Many students studying abroad at the University of Wyoming use financial aid or scholarships to fund their study abroad. We want to make sure you understand how these processes work and what resources are available.
If you file a FAFSA, federal funding can be applied to the costs of participating in a UW approved program or exchange university dependent upon the semester. Most scholarships, grants, and private funding resources are accepted for either study abroad or exchanges. Always meet with UW’s Financial Aid Office to verify your aid package and whether any restrictions apply. Feel free to contact Laurie Jaskolski, Assistant Director of Financial Aid, at email@example.com to set up an appointment or with questions.

There are also departmental scholarships through the University of Wyoming. Here is a full list of Study Abroad Scholarships. One of the best ways to search and apply for UW scholarships is through WyoScholarships. Search “Study Abroad” find the Cheney scholarships and departmental study abroad scholarships. Please note, scholarships will not appear unless there is an active application cycle open. Plan to apply for scholarships the semester before you go.
In addition to the scholarships offered through UW,students are also encouraged to pursue outside scholarships for study abroad through your program sponsor and/or from outside providers or organizations. Many of these opportunities have very early deadlines, so be sure to apply as soon as possible!
For most study abroad scholarships, you DO NOT need to wait until you are accepted to your program to apply for funding. You may be able to apply with tentative plans and update your application if your plans change. Check each scholarship's requirements for details.
