Financial Support


Graduate Assistantships

Assistantships are available for incoming M.A. students: full tuition remission for courses counting toward the American Studies degree, a stipend of more than $11,000 for the academic year, and individual health insurance. These awards are made on a yearly basis but typically students are supported for their two year courses of study. Many of our students are supported by either full or partial Graduate Assistantships. Typical assignments include teaching (mostly in our 2000-level courses), research (particularly in support of on-going, grant funded projects), or public sector assignments with participating organizations (such as the Wyoming Arts Council, the UW Art Museum, or the Wyoming Humanities Council). The application form is available here.


Research support

Students with extraordinary research needs can apply for funding to the Long-Findeisen Fund, which disburses awards in the $100-$300 range.


Conference presentations

Students presenting papers at approved academic or professional conferences can receive up to $300 from the Program. This is frequently matched by other university sources.


International travel

Students presenting papers at international meetings or engaging in a semester’s exchange experience can apply to the Program’s Elaine K. Clatterbuck Fund for the amount of international airfare.



Students filling qualified internships can earn as much as a $1,500 per month stipend.
