Competitive Scholarships

Competitive scholarships are also available to International Students based on academic eligibility.

International students applying for fall entry are eligible to apply for certain scholarships and fellowship programs offered through MU Honors College: ASH Scholars, Discovery Fellows, and Cherng Scholars. You must apply to MU, complete the Honors College Application, and submit all required materials by December 1 to be considered. Review the Honors College site for specific eligibility criteria and application instructions for each award.

International applicants currently residing outside of the U.S. are not eligible for the Stamps Scholarship due to the requirements of an in-person interview. However, the Stamps Scholars Application is also used for the Discovery Fellows review process. If eligible for Discovery Fellows, the Stamps Scholars Application will be available on your Application Status Page.

General & Departmental Scholarships

To be considered for general and departmental scholarships from Mizzou, log into ScholarshipUniverse to answer a series of matching questions. Then complete the individual applications for even more scholarships— both internal and external.

You’ll access ScholarshipUniverse via your Application Status Page after you submit the application for admission. The deadline to apply for general and departmental scholarships through ScholarshipUniverse is December 1.

Governmental & Outside Scholarships
