Wyoming Financial Aid

The state of Wyoming boasts wide open spaces perfect for any student interested in outdoor recreation. Although only one state school, the University of Wyoming, offers a bachelors degree or graduate degree, there are several community colleges offering associates degrees throughout the state. Regardless of the degree the student is pursuing, there is financial aid available to assist them in obtaining their goals.

Wyoming Scholarships and Grants

Wyoming scholarships and grants are an important part of the educational environment for Wyoming students. Use the Campus Explorer Scholarship Search to find Wyoming scholarships that will help you achieve your education goals.

As most of the postsecondary institutions in Wyoming are community colleges, most of the state aid programs are provided for these students. The Wyoming Community Colleges Commission offers three financial aid programs:

  1. Wyoming Investment in Nursing (WYIN): Students enrolled in a nursing program at the University of Wyoming or a Wyoming community college are eligible to receive this financial aid.
  2. Veteran’s Tuition Programs: Several programs are offered to Wyoming veterans that aid in funding the student’s college education.
  3. Teacher Shortage Loan Repayment Program: Students must be in their junior year at the University of Wyoming and be seeking a teacher education degree leading to certification in special education, mathematics or science. The loan does not need to be repaid if the student uses their certification to work in a public school in Wyoming teaching one of the three previously mentioned subjects for at least 50% of their working hours.
  4. Wyoming Hathaway Scholarship Program: Students who meet the academic requirements and attend college in the 307 area code are eligible to receive up to $1,600 per semester.

Scholarships from Wyoming Colleges and Universities

Students attending Wyoming colleges or universities should look to their schools for scholarship opportunities. A scholarship may be based on financial need, merit, special talent, ethnicity, department a combination and more. For example, Laramie County Community College offers one simple application that determines the students eligibility for all scholarships offered by the school. The Western Wyoming Community College offers the Superior Scholarship to students who have a 3.75 GPA or higher that covers the total cost of tuition and related fees.

Another aspect to factor into the scholarship search is which city the college is located. Colleges and universities in Wyoming located in cities that have a large number of colleges may have more financial aid opportunities. The cities with the most colleges and universities in Wisconsin are Cheyenne, Laramie, Casper, Evanston, WY and Powell, WY.
