Student Scholarships

  • Available to eligible UniWyo members
  • Money for classes at UW
  • Assistance for studying abroad

We're proud to support Wyoming's next generation of leaders.

UniWyo pledged a quarter of a million dollars. And the State of Wyoming generously matched our gift. Put it all together, and you get two attractive scholarship programs for credit union members. The UniWyo Distinction Scholarships and the UniWyo Study Abroad Scholarships are awarded annually. Here's important information for potential applicants:

  • Application deadlines vary.
  • 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 or the application process, please contact the University of Wyoming Financial Aid Office at (307) 766-2116.
