Hathaway Award and Use Information You have six years to use the award once you start receiving funds (unless granted an exception for military or religious service). In addition to the six year timeline restriction, Hathaway has set guidelines for using Hathaway Awards and overall eligibility:
Honors, Performance, and Opportunity Levels: Students who receive the Honors, Performance, or Opportunity levels of the Hathaway Scholarship can receive the award for the equivalent of eight full-time semesters (96 total paid credits). These students can choose to use their Hathaway for up to four full-time semesters (48 paid credits) at a community college and can then use the rest of their eligibility at the University of Wyoming OR they can choose to attend the University of Wyoming for all eight semesters of eligibility.
Provisional Opportunity Level: Students receiving the Provisional Opportunity level of the Hathaway Scholarship can receive the award for the equivalent of four full-time semesters (48 paid credits) at a community college. Should students receive a certificate during those semesters, the scholarship may be extended at the community college so they can pursue an additional certificate or an Associate’s Degree. Should students receive an Associate’s Degree, they may transfer the scholarship (if they have not already been paid for 96 total credits) to use at the University of Wyoming to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree.
