To apply for scholarships visit the Scholarship Universe (formerly Missouri S&T Scholarship Database). While scholarships for incoming freshmen are assigned automatically, continuing students need to (re-)apply every year. The majority of the applications open on October 1 and remain open through February 1 of the following year. Students do not need to apply for each scholarship option separately. Instead, students complete one general departmental application and SFA will then match the students to the appropriate scholarships. In case there exists a discrepancy between the amount posted on the DoC website and the awarded scholarship amount, please contact the Chair of the Scholarship Committee via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
