General Information

  • An eligible student at any Wyoming Community College may take an approved HSEC course (See approved course list below) offered by any Wyoming Community College (online or classroom).
  • Upon successful completion of the course, student will be reimbursed for actual expenses directly related to the approved HSEC course – tuition, books, lab fees, or online learning fees.
  • Students must submit original receipts for reimbursement.
  • An eligible student may receive grant scholarship assistance for more than one approved HSEC course per semester depending on funding availability in any particular semester.
  • Students are not required to be Homeland Security majors to apply, however students with declared Homeland Security majors will be given first priority for HSEC scholarship funds.
  • A student approved for, and taking, an approved HSEC course under the Homeland Security Scholarship program may not apply for nor receive any duplicate financial assistance from any other source for that course.

Eligibility

  • Students must be currently enrolled and in good academic standing at a Wyoming Community College at the time of application.
  • Students must currently have a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA.
  • Students must remain in good academic standing and maintain the minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA requirement throughout the semester for which they have applied for scholarship reimbursement.
  • Because the assistance to the student is part of a federal grant administered by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, students who do not successfully complete the course with a grade of “C” or better will not be eligible under the federal grant for reimbursement of any fees or costs.
