State lawmakers established a scholarship fund in 2005 to provide scholarships for deserving Wyoming high school graduates to attend the University of Wyoming or any of the state’s seven community colleges. The fund has a $400 million permanent endowment, and its income is used to support the fund.

The fund offers the Hathaway Scholarship, ranging from $840 to $1,680, to high school seniors who perform outstandingly in their academics and need financial assistance to further their education in specific fields. Those interested in the fields of mathematics, languages, science, social science, foreign language, performing arts, fine arts, and English, are eligible to apply.

The provision of merit- and need-based scholarships to qualified Wyoming high school graduates has made Governor Hathaway’s vision of creating a better Wyoming a reality.
