Transfer Scholarships

Merit-based Awards

Missouri S&T offers a wide variety of scholarship and financial assistance programs for students.

Scholarship programs for undergraduate transfer students are only available to U.S. citizens and students who have not yet received their first bachelor's degree, and will vary in amount based on your state of residency, GPA, academic record, etc.

In addition to scholarships offered by Missouri S&T, we also welcome scholarships you may earn from outside organizations as well. There is no limit to the amount of scholarship support you can bring with you from outside sources, so be sure to search for scholarship opportunities and apply for as many as you are able to.

These scholarships available for U.S. citizens, permanent residents and students pursuing their 1st bachelor's degree. International students may contact the Admissions Office regarding scholarships. Eligibility criteria and application process are as follows:

  • Admitted transfer students who apply for admission are automatically considered for scholarships (no separate scholarship application required) if they meet application deadlines. For example, those students who are enrolling for a fall semester, we will begin priority scholarship awarding as of February 1. We will continue scholarship awarding for all eligible students who submit their admission application by May 1 (final deadline). For students who plan to enroll in a spring semester, priority scholarship awarding will begin October 1 with awarding continuing for students who submit admission applications by December 1 (final deadline). Applicants are encouraged to have their admission application and transcripts from all previously attended institutions to the Admissions office by these final deadlines to insure receipt of scholarship.
  • Transfer students must have completed 24, college-level, graded, transferrable credits from a U.S. institution and be pursuing their 1st bachelor's degree upon enrollment at Missouri S&T to be considered for scholarships. Application may be made prior to completing 24 hours but receipt of the award will require a transcript with 24 hours of credit with the appropriate grade point average (GPA).
  • Renewal will be based on a cumulative GPA after two semesters at Missouri S&T. Cumulative GPA will include courses transferred in and those taken at Missouri S&T.
  • The scholarship amounts below reflect an annual award with one-half available for the fall semester and one-half for the spring semester (scholarships are not available for summer sessions).
