Central Wyoming College offers free tuition, scholarships to GIST students
RIVERTON, Wyo. — Wyoming wants you. Or, more accurately, Central Wyoming College (CWC) in the city of Riverton (pop. 10,953), wants you to get a degree in geospatial information science and technology ( GIST ) from CWC so you can put your geospatial skills to work in Wyoming.
The school wants you so much, it is offering free tuition through a state program to qualified Wyoming residents, and scholarships to nonresidents, if they earn a credential, a certificate, or an associate of applied science (AAS) degree in GIST from CWC. In exchange, the students must work in-state, usually in temporary, full-time paid positions during the summer or in part-time jobs during the school year, to help meet Wyoming’s need for GIST-trained technicians.
