(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Six local high school students have received top academic scholarships from the University of Wyoming. Among the seventy-two high school seniors
from across Wyoming selected to receive the 2016 Trustees' Scholars Award,
six of those students were from Cheyenne.
The scholarship covers all credit hours taken, plus room and board costs
for eight semesters at UW, starting fall 2016 semester.
Students were chosen from among 565 eligible candidates and were evaluated
on their academic excellence, for this year’s award winners -- whose
application materials were due by Dec. 1 -- the average GPA is 3.99, and
the average ACT score is 33.
“Wyoming has many incredibly bright and motivated students, and this list
of scholarship recipients represents the best of the best,” UW Admissions
Director Shelley Dodd says. “The Trustees’ Scholars Award is highly
competitive, with more and more high-achieving students applying.”
To retain the scholarship all four years at UW, students must maintain
full-time enrollment during fall and spring semesters each year, along with
a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
