Note: Students are not allowed to apply on their own; both programs require nomination by directors of graduate studies.
All internal fellowship applications must be submitted directly to the Graduate School.
Mizzou graduate fellowships are administered by the Graduate School and are awarded to incoming, full-time graduate students. To be eligible, a student must be admitted to a graduate program and awarded a graduate assistantship.
