    Thank You Scholarship Club Contributors

    January 19, 2017

    doug-mader_web-1.jpgSince 1906, the UW Alumni Association has been investing in the legacy of students - equipping them to carry the torch of UW pride, knowledge and innovation forward to future generations. We are thrilled to have just received a record 1,762 applications for UWAA scholarships from students interested in either beginning or continuing their higher education at the University of Wyoming. By mid-February, we will make new awards to be given to 50 of these students. Therefore, for the 2017-18 academic year, we will provide financial aid to a record 136 students totaling a record $223,250 from the UW Alumni Association. Our scholarship program continues to grow because of generous donors to the Scholarship Club, supporters of the annual scholarship reception and auction and UW alumni and friends who sport the brown Wyoming license plates on their cars. Thank you!
