STEPS TO COMPLETING AN APPLICATION
Step 1: Review the chart below to determine if you think are eligible for one or more WYCF scholarships. You may click on the scholarship name in the table below to learn more about each scholarship’s criteria.
Step 2: If you believe you are eligible for scholarships, you will fill out a “common application.” The common application may direct you to questions for particular scholarship opportunities that you are eligible for. We encourage you to prepare your answers for the applications you believe you are eligible for:
- The common application has some short answer questions, which you should prepare by clicking here.
- Many WYCF scholarships also have unique essay questions, which you should review by clicking on the name of the scholarship in the table below.
Step 3: Gather information to fill out your Financial Aid Affidavit (which is part of the Common Application). You can preview the questions here. For information on the cost of attendance for each Wyoming college, click on the name of the college below. (Doing so will take you to an external website.) Note that most of these sites also give you estimates of the cost of transport, books & supplies, etc., all of which you will need for your Financial Aid Affidavit.

To help you calculate expenses for off-campus living, you can use the Wyoming Women’s Foundation Self Sufficiency Calculator. This is an excellent tool that can help anyone make personal finance decisions (it is not designed exclusively for women).
There are several additional, useful articles on the cost of books, like this one.
Step 4. Read these important pieces of information:
- Once you submit a set of questions, YOU CANNOT CHANGE THEM. Be sure to double check your answers before submitting.
- Don’t worry if some questions feel irrelevant to you: they are to establish eligibility for other opportunities.
- If you think the system gives you the wrong result at any point, or if you have any questions at all, please email Daniel Galbreath (daniel@WYCF.org).
Other important information about scholarships:
- Money is sent directly to the institution; you won’t personally receive it.
