Adult Education Grant Program

COVID-19 has been difficult for many Wyoming residents, especially with job loss and underemployment. We know coming to school as an adult seems overwhelming and paying for college can be a real source of stress. That's why we're excited about the Adult Education Grant program! This grant program is part of the CARES act and will allow a student to cover costs related to the total cost of attendance, which includes tuition and mandatory student fees, course fees, transportation, housing, sustenance, books, and child care.
