The department offers the following research awards and scholarships to students that are already admitted in the program.
The Charles Mason Graduate Research Award was generously created by Prof. John List and Dana Suskind with matching funds from the College of Business at the University of Wyoming. The award will facilitate and support research that combines theory with laboratory, or preferably field, experiments. A key distinction is that theory is intertwined with the experiment in a way that is in the spirit of Chuck’s research. Examples of such research includes work on randomization identifying structural models, but the committee will consider a broad range of proposals within the area of theory with experimentation.

The John Tschirhart Graduate Scholarship in Bioeconomics was generously created by Dr. Paul Turner with matching funds from the College of Business at the University of Wyoming. The scholarship will facilitate and support bioeconomic research in the spirit of John’s research. Examples of such research includes work on endangered species protection, equilibrium models of an ecosystem, predator-prey models, policies to correct ecosystem externalities, and optimal harvesting models. Proposals focusing on other aspects of coupled biological and human systems are also welcome.
