The Troy Yost Memorial Scholarship was established by the Wyoming Community Foundation to assist Wyoming high school graduates, excluding GED recipients, who value art as a significant part of their lives and future plans and are pursuing degrees at the University of Wyoming or other in-state junior or community colleges.

Many students have benefited from the TYM program, which awards successful applicants $1,000. The scholarship has a one-year expiration date and can be extended with a new application; however, it is the candidate’s duty to find out what is needed for a new application.

Applicants must provide an essay, special project, grade transcripts, and resume along with their applications. Scholarship recipients may re-apply for subsequent years.
