Supporting the transition to graduate school

First-Year Scholars (FYS) is a program designed to help participants throughout their first year in graduate school at Mizzou, and to develop a cohort of support. It consists of bi-monthly meetings for nine-months, social gatherings, and other meetings as arranged by the group itself or the CIE Director.

Resources for Scholars

In addition to the program, here are some other opportunities at Mizzou:

The Division of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity’s Graduate Scholars of Excellence program is open to underrepresented students who are currently pursuing a doctoral degree at Mizzou. It was created to help streamline the efforts of graduate student organizations serving underrepresented graduate students. These efforts include retention and success resources and programming that furthers professional development and community building among underrepresented graduate students committed to inclusive excellence.

The Region Education Board (SREB) Doctoral Scholar Program is also available at IDE.
