Medical Doctor

The WICHE program gave me access to some of the top medical schools in the Western United States and the unique opportunity to be part of a small group of students in the inaugural class at the University of Arizona's new campus in Phoenix. I was an EMT in Fremont County before I went to medical school, and I've matched into an emergency medicine residency program! The support of the Wyoming Legislature and the WICHE program have made it possible for me to afford medical school and pursue a career that will help us bring our family back home for good. As a bonus, my husband has obtained his commercial pilot's license and first college degree while we've been in Arizona, so we'll both return to Wyoming with new skills. Thank you, Wyoming, for your support! (Erik the baby thanks you too!)

Osteopathic Medicine

The WICHE PSEP has allowed me to pursue my aspirations of becoming an osteopathic physician/surgeon. Thanks to its wonderful intercollegiate resources, the WICHE PSEP provided me residency status (for application purposes) at a number of medical schools, facilitating matriculation into the school of my choice. In addition, the funding provided by the PSEP has immensely reduced the debt I am accruing while attending classes. Without both of these factors I can easily say that I would not be in medical school right now; however, thanks to the WICHE PSEP and its funding, I am learning medicine, loving it, and excited to get back to Wyoming and practice. Thank-you again!

WICHE’s PSEP has allowed me to pursue my aspirations of becoming an osteopathic physician and surgeon. Thanks to its long standing partnerships with medical programs in the West, WICHE gave me preferential admission at a number of medical schools, facilitating matriculation into the school of my choice. Furthermore, the reduced tuition through PSEP has immensely reduced the debt I am accruing while I study. Without both of these, I would not be in medical school right now! Thanks to WICHE, I’m learning medicine, loving it, and excited to return to Wyoming to practice after I graduate.

Integrated Resource Management

The financial assistance I received made it possible for me to obtain a master's in agricultural sciences. I was able to learn information never made available to me before, in a new and different format. I found the program to have been an integral part in my personal and career growth process. I appreciated the ability to be a part of a hands-on learning experience that ultimately led me in the direction of agricultural law. Without WICHE I would not be prepared to protect the industry I love.

WUE is helping me to achieve not just my academic goals but it has also allowed me to follow and further develop my life long dreams. Without this financial assistance to attend Colorado State University there is no doubt that I would not have been able to major in Nutrition and have access to all of the wonderful resources this community gives its students. I am so grateful for all this program has offered me! I am meeting some of the most motivated and talented people here at school, shaping me into the person I'm going to be someday. I hope to bring my knowledge to my home state soon, in gratefulness of such a valuable program.

Washington State University, College of Veterinary Medicine
Veterinary Medicine

There are not words to express my appreciation to the state of Wyoming and the WICHE program. I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming and have always wanted to live and work in a rural community in my home state. Through this program I was able to pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian and I will be able to return to Wyoming. Without the WICHE program students like me would not be able to return to rural communities. We would be forced to take employment in larger cities to be able to pay off our student debt. In addition, there are a limited number of veterinary colleges especially in the west. This is a great program for all ambitious young men and women who do not have professional schools in their home state.

Words aren’t enough to express my appreciation to the State of Wyoming and WICHE! I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming and have always wanted to live and work in a rural community. Thanks to PSEP, I was able to pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian and I will be able to return to Wyoming. Without PSEP, students like me could not afford to return to their rural communities. Rather, we’d be forced to take employment in larger cities where earnings are higher, so that we could pay off our student debt. PSEP is a lifesaver for students who don’t have professional schools in their home state.

Physical Therapy

Since there is no physical therapy program in my home state of Wyoming, WICHE's PSEP program was the only option for me that didn't involve crippling amounts of student loans. Because of WICHE, I was able to chose from several excellent, but otherwise unaffordable schools. I am now finishing physical therapy school and will soon go back to Wyoming to begin practicing. Thanks to WICHE, I am the first member of my family to graduate from college.

Briefly, PSEP has reduced my debt load. Having to go out of state typically means higher tuition, but PSEP saved me about $10k a year, for which I am grateful. As a 50-year-old, I will have much less time to pay off my loans and save for retirement, so every bit helps.

PSEP has allowed me to pursue the dream of becoming of physical therapist by providing me with a scholarship to put toward tuition and living costs. Without PSEP, I may not have been able to attend the school I desired, or receive the education that I value so much. With the help of WICHE and PSEP I will become the therapist I have the potential to become.

I can not express enough gratitude for the WICHE program. My home state of Wyoming did not offer a degree in Veterinary Medicine. With the funding from WICHE, I was able to choose between the best schools in the nation for the same cost as in state tuition. I am able to pursue my dream of small animal private practice, and to do so without an unrealistic amount of debt. Thank you Wyoming, and WICHE for your support!

I cannot express enough gratitude for the WICHE Professional Student Exchange Program. My home state of Wyoming did not offer a professional degree in veterinary medicine. With PSEP support, I was able to choose from the best schools in the nation and pay in-state tuition. I am able to pursue my dream of small animal private practice, and do so without an unrealistic amount of student debt. Thank you Wyoming and WICHE for your support!
