This program, originated in 1986, provides a source of financial assistance to Wyoming high school seniors who wish to pursue their education after high school. The cash scholarship is valued at $400.00. Presently two are awarded per Wildlife Division Region in the state, amounting to 14 total scholarships. These scholarships can be used for any trade school, community college or major university, instate or out-of-state. The senior must complete an essay application containing questions related to Wyoming's environment, hunting and their future plans. The recipients are picked by the game wardens in each region based on their essay answers and financial need.
Every Wyoming high school senior is encouraged to apply for the scholarships. The application deadline is March 1 of each year. Selection is made by the respective wardens in each of the seven wildlife regions by March 30. Every effort is made to present the scholarship award to the selected seniors at their high school awards ceremony by the local game warden.
The application needs to be completely filled out and sent to your area's game warden. If you do not know who your area's game warden is, please consult the Warden Map and address list found on this website
