Exciting Awards for New Graduate Students

Students listen to adjunct professor Hennings on 2015 field trip

We also proudly offer three enhanced assistantships to the very best students with an additional $7250 above the normal G & G stipend during the first year.

These scholarships are given to the top three applicants on the basis of their statements of interest, CVs, transcripts, letters of recommendations, and interviews with departmental faculty at UW.

Nearly all of our graduate students are supported through state-funded assistantships and external research grants.

Our normal Geology & Geophysics stipend is $2500 above the standard UW stipend.

Assistantships funded by external research grants will likely offer higher stipends. 

If you have any questions about the enhanced assistantships or any other aspect of graduate admissions, please contact the chair of thre graduate committee, (dgrana@uwyo.edu).

Here, new graduate students listen in at a stop led by Peter Hennings, formerly of ConocoPhillips, who is also Adjunct Professor in the Department.
