Hathaway Scholarship Fund

“We must all work together to build a better Wyoming.”

– Governor Stanley Hathaway

Hathaway History

The Hathaway Scholarship was established to help Wyoming’s students prepare for and pursue their post-secondary education in the state.

The scholarship has its roots in Governor Stanley Hathaway’s 1974 decision to create the state of Wyoming Permanent Mineral Trust Fund. The fund’s income would support state government operations – including higher education in Wyoming.

In 2005, state lawmakers created a scholarship fund with a $400 million permanent endowment, whose income funds scholarships for qualified Wyoming high school graduates to attend the University of Wyoming or any of the state’s seven community colleges. They honored Hathaway’s many contributions to the state and accomplishments by naming the scholarship program for him.

The Hathaway Scholarship program has turned Governor Hathaway’s dream of building a better Wyoming into a reality by making attending college possible through merit- and need-based scholarships for qualified Wyoming high school graduates.
