University of Wyoming’s MSIP Project
Meg Anderson: local coordinator

Math Science Initiative Project (MSIP) is a college preparatory program that is funded by the US Department of Education through the University of Wyoming and Applications can be obtained from Mrs. Anderson. MSIP assists eligible students to prepare for successful entry into college. The four main goals of the project are to:
  1. Raise high school GPAs to levels consistent with entry to college and ensure that students pursue challenging courses
  2. Prepare students for successful application and entry to college
  3. Help students and families to pursue federal financial aid and other sources of funding for college
  4. Increase the number of low-income and first generation students earning a college degree
Because MSIP is a federal TRIO program, the services are provided at no cost to families and eligibility is limited to students who are:

In grades 9 through 11

A first generation college student meaning neither parent has earned a four-year college degree
