Undergraduate Aid

All students enrolled at the University of Missouri are required to pay tuition based on the number of credits of instruction they are receiving.  Courses taken as a hearer (auditor) are charged at their normal credit value when computing the amount of fees to be paid. Some departments also assess additional course fees. Other required fees may include equipment/materials and international fees. Optional fees may include student insurance. Learn more at the Office of Student Financial Aid.

To be considered for Engineering scholarships, students must fill out the scholarship application through ScholarshipUniverse.

Freshmen Scholarships

To apply for engineering scholarships, you must first apply for admission and receive your myZou account information. Once your account information is available, log into your myZou account and set your permanent password so that you can complete the annual scholarship applications.

For students admitted without GPA and ACT/SAT scores, awards will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Students who do not meet the Direct Departmental Admission Requirements listed above are admitted to Mizzou Engineering as Pre-Engineering students.

Admitted freshmen are eligible to apply for an Engineering Scholarship based on their ACT Composite, math ACT score and high school performance, with additional consideration given for freshmen who have exhibited involvement in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) extra-curricular activities. Scholarship selection will be a based on holistic view of each individual within the total freshman applicant pool and funds available.

Students are automatically considered for departmental scholarships when they do all of the following:

  • Complete the MU Annual Scholarship Application through ScholarshipUniverse
  • Are a sophomore, junior or senior
  • Maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA
  • Take at least one math and one science or engineering course a semester. The science/engineering course must be at least three credit hours. If math requirements have been met, students must take two science or engineering courses per semester.

Please note that scholarships are not typically available for summer sessions.

A scholarship committee (composed of representatives from each department) will choose recipients based on the criteria of individual scholarships (some specific scholarships emphasize academics; others are more need-based).

An award is annual, with half the funds available for the fall semester and half available for the spring semester. Scholarships are not available for summer sessions.

Students must submit a scholarship application each year in order to be considered, even if the scholarship is renewable. Failure to re-apply will result in the loss of a scholarship.

Contact your departmental adviser for more information.
