The March 7 deadline for scholarships with the University of Wyoming Alumni Association (UWAA) is quickly approaching.

The UWAA offers scholarships for students who may not have the perquisites for other scholarships. Director of the University of Wyoming Alumni Association, Kinner Fry, explains the qualities they search for in applicants:Kinner Fry Clip on UWAA Scholarships

Once students have received the scholarships, they must maintain a GPA of 2.5 for their tenure at the university. The Alumni Association offers awards from $1,500 to $5,000 per year for four years.

All the money for the UWAA’s scholarships is donated by private donors or through fundraisers, such as dinners and auctions.
