Cheneys donate to UW study-abroad endowment
$1.8 million for study abroad scholarship programs
by University of Wyoming
July 24, 2007

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, have created for the University of Wyoming the largest single-university endowment dedicated to study abroad support. They presented $1.8 million, an amount matched by the state of Wyoming, to establish scholarships promoting internationalization in education. UW has ties to universities on every continent except Antarctica and continues to add partners abroad.

"This gift shows a keen appreciation for the importance of our students having meaningful global experiences," says UW President Tom Buchanan.

The endowment will support four scholarship categories: Cheney Study Abroad Grants, Dick and Lynne Cheney Fellowships for Excellence in Study Abroad, Dick and Lynne Cheney International Awards for University Sponsored or Recognized Student Organizations, and Cheney Semester Support Scholarships.

Dick Cheney earned both a B.A. (1965) and an M.A. (1966) in political science from the University of Wyoming.

For additional information or applications, call (307) 766-3677, e-mail, or visit UW Knight Hall Room 248.
