M.A. students at the University of Wyoming have access to full funding opportunities through Graduate Assistantships, research grants, and other sources.
Each year, the History Department awards a number of assistantships to our incoming graduate students. These are designed to cover all or part of tuition and fees for the first year of study while also providing hands-on teaching experience. Assistantships may be renewed for a second year, thereby making it possible for tuition expenses to be fully covered for the duration of the master’s program. If you wish to be considered for a graduate assistantship, simply indicate this when you are applying to the program.
Thanks to the Larson-McGee Scholarship Endowment, the History Department has been able to provide research support to nearly all of our graduate students for the past several years. This typically takes the form of summer research projects following a student’s first year of study.
The History Department strongly encourages graduate student participation in regional and national conferences. To that end, the Department has limited travel funds available to offset conference travel expenses. Additional funding may be available through the College of Arts & Sciences, Office of Academic Affairs, and outside sources such as professional organizations, conference conveners, etc. The History Department can assist you in seeking out funding for these types of activities.
