Other Scholarship Resources

Several financial organizations provide online scholarship resources and search services. The best time to use them is one year prior to college enrollment. The Mizzou Office of Student Financial Aid does not endorse or support particular private scholarships or scholarship search sites. Mizzou cannot guarantee the accuracy of these scholarship searches but recommends trying them if no cost is involved. If you are an incoming freshman, we recommend you also talk with your high school guidance counselor about other private scholarship options that may be available to you.

When searching for private scholarships, please remember to look out for signs of scams. Never give money, credit card numbers or bank account information to any entity promising scholarships.


To be considered for Mizzou general and department scholarships, as well as a large database of other private scholarships, you should log into ScholarshipUniverse using your Mizzou assigned username and password and answer a series of matching questions. Then you can complete the individual applications for both Mizzou and private scholarships and grants.
