Mizzou offers a scholarship for international students that will be automatically considered for when they will apply. This scholarship is an education fund that don’t have to be repaid. To receive this international automatic scholarship, students must enroll full time (a minimum of 12 credit hours) at the University of Missouri on the Columbia campus the first regular semester (fall or spring) following graduation from high school.

The scholarship is only applicable to the fall and spring semesters; therefore, you cannot receive this award in the summer semester.

The international automatic scholarship may be reduced to keep your total financial aid package within your Cost of Attendance for the academic year, or in situations where other sources are paying for or waiving tuition and fees for you.
