Graduate Fellowships

External Funding Opportunities

To apply for federal financial aid and university loans listed below (Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loan, University loans & Direct Loans) you must complete a FAFSA each academic year. Preference will be given to those students whose FAFSA has been received by February 1. If you apply for federal financial aid at any other time of the year, Missouri S&T will attempt to fill your financial needs to the extent that funds or opportunities are available.


NSF Fellowships are awarded to the successful applicants directly. NSF pays the fees of the fellows. Part-time teaching by NSF fellows may increase the appointment; some departments require this teaching experience. Contact the department you will be pursuing your graduate degree in to see if NSF funding may be available to you.


Under a cooperative agreement between the United States Department of Education and Missouri S&T, fellowships are offered for graduate study leading to a doctor of philosophy degree. DOE fellows receive a yearly stipend of $15,000. DOE pays the fees for the fellow. Contact the department you will be pursuing your graduate degree in to see if US Department of Education Fellowships may be available to you.


Several industrial fellowships are available, the number varying with the problems and support given by the industry. Industrial fellowship holders are required to work part time on the project to which they are assigned. The exact amount of time is governed by the character of the project and its applicability to thesis requirements. The stipend for industrial fellowships is variable, depending on support from industry, but appointments are ordinarily effective for a year at a time. Both academic and research work may be applied as credit to fulfill the requirements of the master of science or doctor of philosophy degrees. Complete information concerning the fellowships currently available may be obtained from the chair of the department concerned.
