FAQ

Can I use a Hathaway Scholarship at an out-of-state school?
No. The intent of the scholarship is, in part, to encourage students to pursue higher education in Wyoming with hopes that they will consider pursuing a career here when they are completed.
 
While the Hathaway Scholarship isn’t available to use out of state, students who attend an out-of-state school may come back within the two-year time period to an in-state eligible institution and begin using their scholarship.
 
What if I am going on a mission or joining the military?
The Hathaway Scholarship can begin to be used no later than two academic years after you graduate from high school. Exceptions may be made for extended military service or religious sojourns. Please contact us at 307.778.1215 to discuss your situation.

I qualify, but am going to attend another institution and transfer to LCCC. How does the process work?
Students who receive a Hathaway Scholarship, use it at another eligible Wyoming institution, then transfer to LCCC will transfer their scholarship with them, subject to the continued eligibility requirements previously discussed. Transferring students also need to complete the LCCC Hathaway Application (pdf) prior to their arrival.
 
Can I be classified as a Wyoming resident so I can get a Hathaway Scholarship?
To qualify for the Hathaway Scholarship you must be considered a resident or eligible nonresident according to the LCCC residency policy. Additional residency requirements for the Hathaway Scholarship may apply. If you have questions about residency, please call the Admissions Office at 307.778.1357.
 
I have a special situation and that this website doesn't address. What can I do?
Call Scholarships and Financial Aid Office at 307.778.1215. We're happy to help!
 
Where’s the incentive to take AP, IB and other honors courses?
Challenging course loads are looked upon favorably for scholarships. In addition to Hathaway Scholarships, LCCC scholarships can also be awarded to students who qualify.

Doing well in AP and IB courses can also result in credit at LCCC. This means that you’ll have fewer credits to pay for down the road and your Hathaway Scholarship dollars will go farther.

I graduated prior to 2006. Do I qualify for Hathaway Scholarships?
Sorry. The legislation that established the scholarships indicated the scholarship begins with the graduating class of 2006. Students who completed high school in December 2005 are officially part of the class of 2006.
