Graduate School Master’s Fellowships are intended to attract and recruit exceptional new graduate students to UMSL. Fellowships are open to newly admitted master’s and specialist program graduate students. This fellowship is a one-time award of $2,000 to be posted to the student's account. Applicants must have received a bachelor's degree from an accredited university with a minimum 3.3 overall undergraduate GPA. All recipients of a Master’s Recruitment Fellowship must enroll in a minimum of six credit hours for the term of the award.
The Graduate School Minority Master’s Recruitment Fellowship seeks to promote diversity in graduate degree programs. Fellowships are open to newly admitted master’s and specialist program applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents from under-represented ethnic or racial groups (defined as Native American, African American or Hispanic) and who are under-represented in a particular field of study. The minority recruitment fellowship is a one-time award of $2,000 to be posted to the student's account.
Applicants for either the Master’s Recruitment Fellowship or the Minority Master’s Recruitment Fellowship may not be currently or previously enrolled in a graduate program at UMSL. Newly admitted graduate students will be informed by their program directors if they are eligible for consideration for this award. Information such as GPA, relevant standardized test scores, previous awards, and previous research will be used by the program directors in determining eligibility for the fellowship.
Nominations for these awards must come directly from program directors to the Graduate Dean.
Nominations for Recruitment Fellowships are not being accepted at this time.
