This semester there are nearly 5,800 graduate students at Mizzou, representing all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
To support new, returning and prospective students, the Graduate School is expanding resources, including year-round fellowship application assistance and advising opportunities before key award deadlines (such as the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship due in October). There are also events for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows pursuing a Fulbright and other external funding programs.
In addition, we’re creating more ways to applaud excellence and build a welcoming community.
At a recent reception, we celebrated graduate students who earned competitive MU and external fellowships. We also honored a select group known as “MU Graduate Students of Distinction” for receiving highly-prestigious external fellowships and awards.
Graduate students are a key part of our research enterprise. We’re investing in what they need to make an impact.
