Scholars will pursue Bachelor of Science degrees in Engineering.
The Mizzou Engineering STEM Scholars Program aims to contribute to the national need for well-trained engineers by supporting the recruitment, retention and graduation of high-achieving students with demonstrated financial need. Preference will be given to freshmen applicants to the Civil Engineering program, however all other engineering freshmen applicants with an interest in Engineering Sustainability will also be considered for the STEM scholarship.
Freshman applicants selected for the Mizzou Engineering STEM Scholars Program will be awarded a scholarship of $8,500 the first year. The scholarship will be renewed at $9,000 for their sophomore year subject to satisfactory performance in the program. This scholarship will be in addition to other financial aid provided by the University of Missouri Financial Aid Office. Scholarship recipients will additionally receive comprehensive academic support in eight foundational courses (termed Gateway 8) including calculus, basic sciences and engineering analysis. The Missouri Department of Transportation, HDR Engineering, Inc., Kiewit Construction, Allstate Consultants and McClure Engineering will consider Scholars for possible internship, co-op and job-shadowing opportunities to expand undergraduate students’ workforce training and experience. Scholars will receive additional institutional support during their junior and senior years. Optional research with faculty mentors will create opportunities for scholars to transition to University of Missouri graduate programs in engineering.
