Wyoming Works Grant

About Wyoming Works

The Wyoming Works Program began as Senate File 122 (SF122) in Wyoming’s 65th Legislature. After passing both the House and Senate in February 2019, it was signed by Governor Gordon as Senate Enrolled Act 78 (SEA78). The legislation includes a $5 million appropriation; $3 million of which will be used for individual student grants, and the balance will support program development.  Allocation details will be managed by the Wyoming Community College Commission, as these monies will be distributed among all seven Wyoming community colleges.

Wyoming Works is a state program that provides grants for Wyoming residents and funding for Wyoming community colleges in select technical programs that meet labor and economic development needs. Space and grant funding is limited.

  • Wyoming Works Standard Grant will be up to $1680 per academic year.
  • Wyoming Works Critical Grant will be up to $3360 per academic year.
