MU Annual Scholarship Application

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 Annual Scholarship Application.

If you are a new student to MU, you must first apply for admission and receive your myZou account information. Once available, log into your myZou account and set your permanent password so that you can apply for the Annual Scholarship Application. If you are a first-time college student, submit the general scholarship application by December 1st. If you are a continuing or transfer student at MU, submit the general scholarship application by February 1st.  Be sure to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Please Note: If a student is unable to complete a FAFSA due to citizenship status, please contact the International Center in order to complete the MU International Student Financial Need Analysis Form.
