Claire Shipp, a graduate student in agricultural and applied economics, recently received the Mark Twain Fellowship, a highly competitive, MU-sponsored award that supports one Mizzou senior or recent graduate each year to pursue graduate study abroad in any discipline. The fellowship includes a $50,000 scholarship to cover tuition.
Shipp earned the Truman Scholarship last year, and was planning on using that scholarship to study at The University of Oxford. With the addition of the Mark Twain Fellowship, she said she will now be able to cover the entire two-year program at Oxford, as well as do a year of research. Shipp plans on pursuing a master of science in nature, society and environmental governance at Oxford.
