Sheridan – The Wyoming Community Foundation will award more than $200,000 to Wyoming students this year, helping students study at colleges, universities, and trade schools throughout Wyoming and the country.
Until the March 1, 2022 deadline, students can apply for scholarships for all majors, levels of study, and institutions. Many of these scholarships support several years of study, but you must apply for them before starting college.
The Wyoming Community Foundation supports scholarship applicants in several ways. Students can visit wycf.org/scholarships to access a wide range of resources and for information on how to apply.
In addition, the Wyoming Community Foundation Scholarship Coordinator, Daniel Galbraith, will hold a series of virtual financial aid workshops in December. A session for current high school and college students on December 14 from 7-7:45 p.m. will include tips on finding and applying for scholarships, and writing a strong application. On December 15 from 7-7:45 p.m., parents and youth-serving organizations across the state are invited to attend a virtual session on how best to support scholarship applicants.
Both workshops will address financial aid opportunities beyond WYCF scholarships. Anyone interested in attending any of the sessions should email daniel@WYCF.org, call/text 307-223-3063, or see wycf.org/scholarships.
