Hathaway Scholarship Program

Hathaway scholarships are scholarships designed to provide an incentive for Wyoming students to prepare for and pursue postsecondary education within the State of Wyoming. The program consists of four separate merit scholarships, each with specific eligibility requirements, and a need-based scholarship for eligible students which supplement the merit awards.

Funding: 80% of the funds appropriated for the Hathaway Scholarship Program are for the Hathaway Merit Scholarships and 20% of the funds are for Hathaway Need-Based Scholarships.

The Hathaway Scholarship is available at ALL OF THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN THE STATE OF WYOMING, as well as the University of Wyoming.

Hathaway scholarships are not entitlements, and are subject to legislative appropriation. The legislature has the authority to modify or terminate the Hathaway Scholarship Program at any time.

In addition to GPA and ACT scores, students must also meet their course requirements. Students should meet with their School Counselor to make sure they are meeting all the requirements.
