CAFNR General Study Abroad Scholarships

CAFNR annually provides over $70,000 in study abroad scholarships specifically for CAFNR undergraduate students.

If you are a CAFNR undergraduate student participating on any MU CAFNR, MU sponsored, or MU affiliated study abroad program, you can apply for a CAFNR Study Abroad Scholarship.  Scholarship awards are based on academic merit, financial need and program costs, and typically range from $500 to $1,000 for short-term programs and $1,000 to $1,500 for semester programs.

CAFNR International Empowerment Scholarship

CAFNR International Empowerment Scholarships are designed to support international education experiences for CAFNR undergraduate students with high financial need. Specifically, the aim of the CAFNR International Empowerment Scholarship program is to encourage students who may not otherwise apply and/or participate in study abroad programs due to individual financial limitations to apply for and successfully participate in CAFNR study abroad programs.

Scholarship recipients will receive an award of $2,000 – $2,500 to be applied toward the cost of an eligible CAFNR study abroad program.
