The student-athletes who receive these awards will have a portion of their athletic scholarships paid during the 2005-06 school year through the generous contributions and endowments by former Wyoming athletes, coaches, alumni, friends and family of the University of Wyoming. The scholarships are funded by the interest and proceeds from each endowment that has been made through the University of Wyoming Foundation targeted specifically for student-athletes.
