Cheyenne, Wy –
The scholarship will provide between 800 and 1600 dollars a semester for any qualifying Wyoming high school grad. The money does have to be used at one of the state's community colleges or the University of Wyoming.
Governor Dave Freudenthal said right before he signed this bill that this helps meet the requirement of Wyoming's constitution that tuition at the university be nearly as free as possible
The scholarships should be available forever because the money for them will come out of a trust fund. The program to supply the scholarships will start this fall.
