Any donations to the Maneater Scholarship Fund are greatly appreciated. Since 2008, a committee of alumni has awarded $21,500 in scholarships. In 2018, the committee awarded a $2,500 scholarship, and will award another scholarship in 2019. The committee would like to gradually increase the award, with the ultimate goal of a full-year's tuition by 2025. To do this, we need your help. Donations can be directed to MU's Giving to Mizzou page. Please select "Other" when prompted and specify "Maneater Scholarship" in the comment box.
