Program Specific Graduate Assistantships
Graduate students at the University of Wyoming have access to full funding opportunities through Graduate Assistantships, research grants, and other sources. More information about this can be found in the "History Graduate Awards" section on the History Funding Opportunities page.
When applicants submit their materials to the Department of History, they should indicate their wish to be considered for a Graduate Assistantship. Anyone receiving financial support must be registered as a full-time (9 hours per semester) student and must be making acceptable progress towards degree completion. Renewal of Graduate Assistantships is contingent on such progress. Support is not given for more than two academic years.
