Are you looking to distinguish yourself and achieve something with lasting impact for your academic and professional career? Try for a competitive, national scholarship. Check out the information available at the MU Office of National Scholarships which maintains lists of many of the prestigious national scholarships that are out there. If you feel interested, contact their office for help deciding whether to and how to apply. Of course, you should also speak with your academic advisor in the Department of Sociology & Anthropology. Specific application dates change from year to year, so check with their office, website calendar, or the scholarship’s website for deadlines.
