Policy Regarding Applicability of Missouri State Scholarships to Study Away Programs
Students receiving Missouri State scholarships may apply those scholarships (with the exception of out-of-state fee waivers) to study away programs administered and/or approved by the University. Specific examples of such programs include the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), China, and Germany.
A student eligible for a Missouri State scholarship for a given semester may apply the one semester value of that scholarship to the cost of a study away program for up to two semesters. The dollar value of the scholarship will be equivalent to the amount the student would receive if he or she remained on campus (i.e., the additional cost which may be incurred as part of a study away program will not increase the amount of the scholarship award). In the case of Presidential Scholars participating in Missouri State administered programs (with the exception of NSE Plan A) students will receive a stipend for room and board only if they lived on campus the semester prior to the study away experience. This stipend will be equal to the average cost of a suite style room with 19 meal plan.
Students who participate in study away programs not administered or approved through the Missouri State Study Away Office will not be eligible to receive a Missouri State scholarship during the semester(s) for which they participate in the study away program.
All Missouri State scholarship programs are subject to semester limitations. Students should refer to their award letter for details. Semesters in which students apply their scholarships to approved study away programs will be counted as part of the total number of semesters for which students may receive an award. Students who participate in study away programs for which they may not receive Missouri State scholarships, will not have the semesters during which they participate in the study away program subtracted from their remaining scholarship eligibility.
