African American Studies for Student Excellence

This fund was established to provide financial support to declared majors and minors and self-designed majors in African American & Diaspora Studies (AADS). The award will be given each spring at the annual AADS graduation ceremony. Applicants must be a full-time student and be a declared minor within AADS, and plan to return to the university the following year. This scholarship is awarded above any beyond any other monetary compensation a student may already receive from another source. More Information on the Fund for Student Excellence.

African American & Diaspora Studies Endowed Speaker Series

 African American & Diaspora Studies Endowed Speaker Series: AADS seeks financial support to develop an endowed speaker series to enable the program to bring scholars, educators, politicians, artists and others from around the globe to campus, as well as support student study abroad opportunities. The Harriet Elizabeth "Liz" Byrd speaker series is named after Mrs. Byrd, a former Wyoming Senator, Representative and educator.  Byrd was the first African American senator of Wyoming and is well loved throughout the region.
