When will I know how much I get in scholarships?
You can see immediately your minimum Trapper Scholarship award by using the chart for Wyoming or out-of state students to determine your award level. You may be able to add to this total by attending Scholarship Day.
What does "Trapper Provider" mean?
Your Trapper Scholarship package is made up of individual privately funded scholarships. A Trapper Provider is one of these individual scholarships used to fund your NWC Trapper Scholarship. When you complete your scholarship application, you're automatically applied for most Trapper Providers. A few Trapper Providers require extra information from you. If you're eligible for these, you'll see a list of "Recommended Opportunities" when you finish the general application.
Are Private Donor Scholarships added on top of my Trapper Scholarship?
No. Think of your Trapper Scholarship as a package of Private Donor Scholarships. You may receive several Private Donor Scholarships, but they'll all come to you in a single Trapper Scholarship award.
You may be able to add Academic and Activity-Talent Scholarships on top of your Trapper Scholarship.
