A scholarship to help museum studies and anthropology majors at Casper College was recently established through the Casper College Foundation.

Casperite Susan Bishop established the Spaugh Hilsmann Scholarship for Historic Preservation. The yearly scholarship is worth $1500. The scholarship was created to assist students committed to preserving and promoting Wyoming history and culture through their studies and careers. “Wyoming history provides cultural lessons about the people and places that established the equality state,” Bishop said.

To qualify for the Spaugh Hilsmann Scholarship for Historic Preservation, students must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA, enroll for a minimum of six college credits and complete the Casper College online application. Applicants do not have to be Wyoming residents. However, preference will be given to those applicants who volunteer at the Bishop House in Casper.

According to Bishop, the scholarship is named to honor her maternal families’ who were instrumental in developing the livestock and transportation industries of Wyoming.
