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.
DAAD Research Internship in Science and Engineering (RISE)
RISE Germany offers summer research internships in Germany for undergraduate students from North America, Great Britain and Ireland. In their internships, students are carefully matched with doctoral students- whom they assist and who serve as their mentors. Interns receive a monthly stipend to cover every day costs. About 300 scholarships are available each year.
Ernest F. Hollings Scholarship
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Ernest F. Hollings (Hollings) scholarship program is designed to increase undergraduate training in oceanic and atmospheric science, research, technology, and education, and foster multidisciplinary training opportunities.
James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program
Requires campus nomination and must be submitted through the Fellowships Office. The James C. Gaither Junior Fellows Program provides an opportunity for approximately 12 students who desire careers in international affairs to have a substantive one-year working experience in Washington, D.C. Junior Fellows work as research assistants to scholars working at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Fellows gather for a multi-day Quad Fellowship Residential Retreat. The 2023 Residential Retreat is held in Australia. Fellows will also participate in virtual programming with accomplished minds in STEM, government, and society, will take part in a tailored mentorship program, will be exposed to research, internship, and career opportunities in the four Quad countries (Australia, India, Japan, or the United States), and will have opportunities to participate in small-group projects focused on Quad priority areas in STEM.
