The University of Missouri (MU) partners with the Florida A&M University (FAMU) Feeder Scholars Program. This program provides MU direct access to high-achieving sophomores, juniors, and seniors enrolled at FAMU.
Prospective graduate students from FAMU will have the opportunity to participate in TigerView Campus Visitation Program and First-Year Scholars. MU’s Center for Inclusive Excellence in Graduate Education (CIE)’s Director will support scholars throughout the process.
The benefits to FAMU Feeder Scholars include (1) a one-time fee waiver applicable to one graduate application for admission to the University of Missouri Graduate School and (2) consideration for a MU Graduate School Fellowship. FAMU Feeder Scholars interested in the program must be nominated by the FAMU Feeder coordinator. Up to five fellowships a year can be requested for FAMU Feeder Scholars.

Stipend may be supplemented by a departmental offer of funding (e.g., an assistantship). Students who also have an assistantship on campus may be able to set up a 12-month payment schedule for the 9-month assistantship to assist in budgeting. MU-FAMU Feeder Scholar may not receive more than one fellowship from or administered by the Graduate School at a time.
