To be eligible for College of Education undergraduate scholarships, incoming and transfer students must apply, and returning students must reapply, for scholarships through the MU Annual Scholarship Application in myZou (Go to Self Service >Campus Finances >Annual Scholarship Application).

Deadlines for 2017-18:

  • Incoming freshmen: Dec. 15, 2016 (before fall enrollment)
  • Continuing students: Feb 1, 2017 (before fall enrollment)
  • Transfer students: Feb, 1, 2017 (before fall enrollment)

Scholarships are awarded based on:

  • academic achievement in high school or college
  • financial need
  • choice of program
  • nationality or ethnicity
  • county or state of residence

Some scholarships only require students to be enrolled in the college to be eligible.

Some scholarships are renewable and may be awarded to the same students in succeeding years as long as the students maintain eligibility criteria (such as GPA) and submit a new scholarship application through myZou each year.

If a College of Education scholarship recipient changes enrollment to another university or another college within MU, the scholarship will be rescinded.
