Scholarship applications are now available from the Chief Washakie Memorial awards committee for the 2013-14 academic year at the University of Wyoming. The application deadline is Friday, March 1.

Awards will be for varying amounts dependent upon available funds and applicant qualifications. Applicants should have strong ties to the Wind River Indian Reservation community and be seeking a graduate degree, a bachelor’s degree or a certification to retain a current position.

Among criteria used for awarding scholarships are scholastic ability, potential and achievement; involvement in school, community and tribal activities; potential to contribute to the reservation community upon graduation; and financial circumstances.
