Study Abroad Scholarship Fund: Operation Passport

Mizzou has made it a campus priority to increase Study Abroad participation to 30% by 2018. This reflects the University’s commitment to producing graduates who can communicate across cultural and national boundaries in their personal and professional lives. Your gift will afford students transformational opportunities they otherwise would not have.

International Student and Scholar Fund

International students and scholars come to MU from over 100 countries around the world. They not only enrich our campus and community while they are here, but they return home with a better understanding of American life and culture. Gifts to this area might support international students in financial crisis or programs and activities that integrate international students into the life of our campus and our community.

Areas of Greatest Need

Gifts to support areas of greatest need enable University leadership to act strategically and quickly when unexpected opportunities or challenges arise. That could mean providing scholarship support for Study Abroad experiences or international students and scholars, attracting stellar faculty from around the world, or creating innovative programs that deliver unique educational and personal development experiences.
