The University of Wyoming offers a world-class education in the small community of Laramie, Wyoming. Founded in 1886, the university each year welcomes more than 14,000 students from all 50 states and 90 countries. As a land-grant university, the University is dedicated to serving the state of Wyoming and producing graduates who go on to be global leaders.

Open to academics at the level of associate professor or full professor, the Fulbright Scholar Award will afford Australian scholars the opportunity to undertake research and teach to two classes per semester that are strategically aligned to University of Wyoming research priority areas.

The Fulbright Scholar Award (funded by the University of Wyoming) was established to honour Milward Lee Simpson, the 23rd Governor of Wyoming and U.S. Senator. For a candidate at an appropriately senior level and with distinguished credentials, the University may consider having the award be named the Milward Lee Simpson Chair.

Please note the award is for one of the two semesters during the University of Wyoming’s 2020-2021 academic year.
