UniWyo made a pledge  and paid $250,000 to establish two scholarship programs at the University of Wyoming. The money was matched 100% by the State of Wyoming to create a fund of $500,000 from which the UniWyo FCU Distinction Scholarships and the UniWyo FCU Study Abroad Scholarships are drawn annually.

Application deadlines vary and students will receive notifications from the University of Wyoming Financial Aid Office when scholarships are open for accepting applications. There is no guarantee an applicant will receive funding.  Applications are reviewed and funding decisions are made by the University of Wyoming Financial Aid Office.  If you have questions about available scholarships and/or the application process, please contact the University of Wyoming Financial Aid Office at (307) 766-2116.
