Hathaway Scholarship

The Wyoming State Legislature approved legislation during their Spring 2006 session to establish a scholarship fund for Wyoming students to attend Western Wyoming Community college, any of the other six Wyoming community colleges, or the University of Wyoming. The legislation creates merit and need based awards for eligible students to provide an incentive to pursue post-secondary education within the State of Wyoming. In addition, students initiating their Hathaway Scholarship at WWCC before July 31st who are Honors or Performance level will receive an enhancement to their Hathaway award.
