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.
Eligibility requirements include: an undergraduate degree from an accredited college, demonstration of academic excellence, English language proficiency, and that applicants be age 18-28.
Tillman Scholars Program
The Tillman Scholar Program unites and empowers remarkable military veterans and spouses as the next generation of public and private sector leaders committed to service beyond self. The fellowship supports Tillman Scholars with academic scholarships, a national network, and professional development opportunities so they are empowered to make an impact in the fields of medicine, law, business, policy, technology, education and the arts. The application cycle runs from February to March. For demonstrating strong support for their military veterans and spouses, the Pat Tillman Foundation recognizes the University of Missouri System as a partner institution with the Pat Tillman Foundation.
