As part of our mission to support students throughout their time at MU, the Center for Academic Success & Excellence manages four diversity-related scholarships. We assist students who have received these awards by assuring they are meeting the annual renewal requirements, along with the appeal process if the need arises.
The scholarships we manage are:
