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 $500.00. 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.
Dear High School Counselor:
For thirty-four straight years, the WYOMING GAME WARDENS ASSOCIATION is offering fourteen scholarships for the seniors of the Class of 2020. The scholarships can be used by students planning to attend trade schools, community colleges or universities, either in state or out of state. We do not place any stipulations on the area of upper level education, but we do hope those seniors who apply for the scholarships are in need of added financial assistance. As in previous years we will be awarding two scholarships in each of the Wildlife Division Regions, and Association members in the local areas will make the selections. The one-time scholarship amount is $500.00.
We ask that you please make and distribute copies for all interested seniors.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 1
A DOWNLOADABLE ELECTRONIC FORM CAN BE FILLED OUT AND EMAILED.
All applications should be sent directly to the Wyoming Game Warden who covers your area, or emailed to WyGameWardensAssoc@gmail.com. If you don't know who your area Game Warden is or the address, please review the Warden Map Page to locate your area Game Warden, or email WyGameWardensAssoc@gmail.com. Feel free to contact these officers if you have any questions about the scholarship program. If possible, we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to award a certificate and the scholarship check at your school’s Awards Ceremony in the spring should one of your students be selected.
