The School of Graduate Studies administers a number of annual competitions for graduate fellowships. Fellowship stipends vary. Some include remission of portions of the graduate education fees and all include remission of non-resident fees, if applicable. Detailed information is available from the School of Graduate Studies office and website: http://sgs.umkc.edu/fellowships-and-grants/. Applications are normally due in the fall (November, just before Thanksgiving) for fellowships to be awarded for the following academic year. Application deadlines, eligibility and selection criteria, and the application forms are posted on the School of Graduate Studies Web site.
