Mizzou senior Jordan Bartlebaugh says research has defined her undergraduate career. Now, thanks to a fellowship from the National Science Foundation (NSF), she will continue to conduct research following graduation.
Applying for nationally-competitive awards and fellowships can be both challenging and rewarding. On April 10, a celebration was held to recognize MU students who have applied for those awards and fellowships with support from the MU Fellowships Office.
Mizzou senior Xavier Billingsley has had a busy undergraduate experience at Mizzou. He has directed an Alternative Spring Break trip, served as a Summer Welcome leader and interned at the United States Embassy in Jamaica. In addition, he was the 2012 Homecoming King and, probably most notably, he served as the president of the Missouri Student Association in 2012.
Now, he is preparing for life after graduation.
Lindsey Murray, BS ’03, is one of 39 recipients of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, one of the world's most celebrated honors for post-baccalaureate study. The highly-competitive Gates Cambridge Scholarships are full-cost awards given to applicants outside the United Kingdom to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge.
The process of pursuing a fellowship can be daunting. While applying and interviewing for the Rhodes Trust Scholarship, Jaclyn Herr says she gained an “even-worse-than- before addiction to coffee and maybe some minor hair loss.”
More importantly, she gained a better sense of self-confidence.
