There are unnumerable fellowship opportunities available to MU students. Some are large programs that fellowships advisers work with frequently. You can find the subset of those on our core fellowships page.
Other fellowships are smaller or more niche, but that doesn’t mean they are less valuable. You can find, as well as our core fellowships, in the database below.
It’s important to know that there is no single fellowship database that is complete. This is merely one among many. Other good databases can be found through the University of Illinois and Arizona State University.
