Hathaway Scholarship Application

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The House Education Committee has endorsed two bills that would raise the Hathaway Scholarship award and allow Hathaway money to pay for summer classes.

Both bills were approved on 9-0 votes Monday. The entire House will have to debate both measures, which have already passed the Senate.

The House Education Committee amended the bill increasing the Hathaway Scholarship award.

Senate File 55 left the Senate with a 5 percent increase. The House panel increased it to 10 percent, which was the amount in the original proposal before the Senate changed it.

The idea behind increasing the award is to keep pace with rising college tuition and fees.

The Hathaway Scholarship award has not been increased since it was first started in 2006.
