Hathaway “Gap” Extended to Four Years
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 19, 2018
Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead signed a bill giving in-state students up to four years after graduating from high school to apply for the Hathaway Scholarship.
The Laramie Boomerang reports that the bill was signed Monday and allows young people four years to apply for the Hathaway Scholarship instead of two, which had been the case since the scholarship was first awarded in 2006.
Wyoming’s Hathaway Scholarship program provides assistance to graduates of state high schools attending state colleges. The bill’s sponsor says the extra time to decide a course of study will help University of Wyoming students get more out of the award.
