First-time college students: Missouri residents

Automatic scholarships

The University of Missouri offers several scholarships for which students are considered automatically when they are admitted to MU.

Other MU scholarships require the students to apply using the MU Annual Scholarship Application.


Nonresident students whose nonresident tuition is paid by another source are not eligible to receive fee waivers through automatic scholarships. If you gain Missouri residency while receiving a non-resident automatic scholarship, you will automatically forfeit the annual award. More about non-Missouri resident scholarships.
