*The Wyoming’s Tomorrow Scholarship program and its initial endowment fund contribution of $10M were established by the 2022 Wyoming State Legislature. Currently, the scholarship program endowment fund is only partially funded, so the 2023 Legislature set aside $1.25M to “kickstart” the scholarship program until its endowment fund reaches the required $50M and the scholarship is fully funded. By kickstarting the scholarship program, scholarship funds are available now rather than later to assist those that want to pursue their degree or certificate at a Wyoming college or university.
