Student Diversity Scholarships

The mission of the Student Diversity Programs office is to assist in actively supporting students from ethnic populations that have historically been under-represented in science and engineering careers.  These populations include African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American.

SDP Scholarships and other corporately-funded Diversity Scholarships awarded by Missouri S&T are IN ADDITION to merit-based scholarship awards.
