ASUW Leadership Scholarship Fund

Leadership is an important part of a student’s time in college. To encourage students to become involved in leadership activities at the University of Wyoming, the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming (ASUW) has created a leadership scholarship. This student must have been an active member of the campus and community, and have demonstrated leadership skills in these areas, and have plans to continue their leadership. Previous recipients are encouraged to apply again with the understanding that the most qualified applicants will receive the scholarship.

Scholarship grants to students enrolled in the University of Wyoming (UW). To be eligible for this scholarship award an applicant must:

  1. Be a current year graduating high school student planning to enroll at UW, and/or a current student at the UW;
  2. Demonstrate participation in athletics, student organizations, student government, community service, and/or other student leadership involvement; and
  3. Have a high school cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.5, on a 4.0 scale, for graduating high school students or a cumulative UW GPA of 3.0 for UW students.

Recipients shall be determined, in part, by the qualities he/she provides in a written resume of campus and community involvement.

The recipients shall also be determined, in part, by a 500 word essay.
