<p>&nbsp;I have dreamed of&nbsp;going to physical therapy school for a long time, and would not let anything get in the way of that goal. &nbsp;With rising costs of tuition, this presented a stressful challenge. &nbsp; I wondered how I could possibly&nbsp;afford to go to graduate school and pay&nbsp;out of state tuition. &nbsp;Having the WICHE has afforded me the opportunity to go to a great school at a more reasonable price so I can focus on what counts, which is learning and getting the most out of this experience. &nbsp;Thanks to the WICHE, I am able to go to an incredible PT school and pursue my lifelong goal of becoming a physical therapist, a career that will eventually allow me to give back to the state that I love. &nbsp;</p>

I dreamed of going to physical therapy school for a long time, and would not let anything get in the way of that goal. But with rising tuition costs, this presented a stressful challenge. I wondered how I could possibly afford to go to graduate school and pay out-of-state tuition. WICHE's PSEP program gave me the opportunity to go to a great school at a more reasonable price, so that I can focus on what counts: learning and getting the most out of my educational experience. Thanks to WICHE's program, I am able to go to an incredible PT school and pursue my lifelong goal of becoming a physical therapist -- a career that will eventually allow me to give back to the state that I love.

<p>Had it not been for the WICHE PSEP program, I would not have attended veterinary school. The price of a veterinary degree is often insurmountable and receiving support from the state of Wyoming has been a live saver! I will graduate with a fraction of the loan burden many of my fellow students are faced with and I feel very fortunate for this opportunity.</p>

<p>The WICHE&nbsp;program is an amazing&nbsp;scholarship&nbsp;that I am blessed to have while attending Optometry school. This has given me the opportunity to save a great deal of money while receiving my professional education&nbsp;and allows me to return home once I have completed my O.D.. Some may argue that having this scholarship holds you back from taking other opportunities if presented in other states, however, I do not feel this way. I plan on returning to Wyoming regardless of other opportunities, and this scholarship is saving me close to 100K with interest in the future. The program is paying me to come back home. This doesn&#39;t get any better than that! Thank you to all of those that have supported students with this financial opportunity!</p>

The WICHE's PSEP is an amazing scholarship that I am blessed to have while attending optometry school. It's saved me a great deal of money while receiving my professional education and allows me to return home once I have completed my O.D. Some students may argue that service payback scholarships limit you from taking other opportunities in other states, but I disagree. I plan on returning to Wyoming regardless. PSEP will have saved me close to $100,000 if I consider interest charges for repayment on loans that I didn't need to take out! The program is essentially paying me to come back home. It doesn't get any better than that! Thank you to the State of Wyoming for supporting students with this great opportunity!

<p>Without the WHICHE&nbsp;program I never could have afforded to attend vet school. &nbsp;It&#39;s that plain and simple.&nbsp;</p>

Attending physical therapy school has been an ambition of mine for a very long time; however, the high costs associated with graduate school stood as a major deterrent to my application. When I learned that WICHE was going to help attenuate much of that financial burden, an enormous amount of relief swept over me. I am extremely grateful to Wyoming, and to WICHE, for the opportunity to have been selected as a recipient into the Professional Student Exchange Program. I look forward to returning to that great state, so I can give back to the community and commission that have helped make my attending PT school possible.</span></p>

I'm a first-year student enrolled in Regis University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. Attending physical therapy (PT) school has been an ambition of mine for a very long time; however, the high costs associated with graduate school were a major deterrent to my application. When I learned that WICHE was going to help attenuate much of that financial burden, an enormous amount of relief swept over me. I am extremely grateful to Wyoming, and to WICHE, for the opportunity to have been selected as a recipient into the Professional Student Exchange Program.

<p>The process of applying and interviewing for physical therapy school is a stressful time. There were so many unknown variables involved with where I might go, what the program would be like, and how much it would cost when I finished. I was extremely relieved when I learned that I was chosen for a WICHE scholarship to attend PT school, but it involved more than just the financial assistance. WICHE&rsquo;s professional exchange program drastically reduced my overall costs and gave me a sense of opportunity and pride to return to practice in Wyoming when I graduate. I know that I will have less debt and greater job opportunities when I finish my degree, which fosters my development as a novice professional. Receiving a WICHE scholarship gave me both financial and personal assistance to succeed in my new career and bring my skill set back to the state of Wyoming.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Choosing to go back to school for physical therapy was a life changing decision and one that required immense effort to make a reality. Once I set my professional goals and began to take prerequisites, I was committed to the profession with high hopes of gaining acceptance into a DPT program. I prepared for graduate school academically, but I also had to prepare for a future where I could return to school full time, support myself, and be financially responsible. I was elated&nbsp;when I found out I had also been offered WICHE, my life completely changed for the better; I knew then that there was nothing-not even tuition- that could stop me from achieving my professional goals. &nbsp;I am enormously grateful for the opportunity that WICHE has provided, and I cannot wait to return to Wyoming to practice as a Physical Therapist.&nbsp;</p>

Going back to school for a doctorate in physical therapy was a life changing decision and one that required immense effort to make a reality. Once I set my professional goals and began to take prerequisites, I was committed to the profession with high hopes of gaining acceptance into a DPT program. I prepared for graduate school academically, but I also had to prepare for a future where I could return to school full-time, support myself, and be financially responsible. I was elated when I found out I had been selected for a WICHE PSEP award from the State of Wyoming. My life completely changed for the better and it was at that point that I knew nothing could stop me from achieving my professional goals -- not even high tuition costs. I am enormously grateful for the opportunity that WICHE has provided, and I cannot wait to return to Wyoming to practice as a physical therapist.

<p>As a husband, father, and current first year medical student at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine I am very grateful to be a WICHE-PSEP recipient. My home state of Wyoming does not have its own D.O. program, so I tried to look for a school as close to home as I could. As you can imagine medical school does not allow for any extra time to make a stable income. So providing for my family and making tuition payments without going into significant student loan debt was a major concern for me as I considered applying to medical schools. Without the financial assistance I receive through this program, taking care of my family and paying for school would be nearly impossible. The stresses of my education have been greatly diminished thanks to the aid that I am receiving. I am very excited to return to Wyoming when I finish residency and I feel privileged that my home state is playing such a major role in helping me to achieve my dream of being a physician.</p>
