Missouri State offers a number of special funding opportunities for graduate students.
Thesis research funding
Available during for both the fall and spring semesters, this funding specifically supports your thesis research and helps pay any extraordinary or unusual costs incurred while initiating or constructing your project.
Awards of approximately $500 are provided to help defray the real costs of supplies, materials, and travel needed to facilitate student research.

Graduate student travel funding
You can apply for funding assistance to present your research results at conferences, symposiums and more.
The average award is $200, although some situations result in slightly smaller or slightly larger awards (not to exceed $300).
Applications must be submitted to the Graduate College at least two weeks prior to travel. Funding will not be awarded post-travel.
If more than one student in your department or program will be presenting at the same conference, one combined application should be submitted.
The project being presented must be the result of work fulfilling the research requirement for the student's graduate program (thesis or seminar/degree paper).
