Missouri University of Science and Technology Scholarship for International Students
Missouri University of Science and Technology scholarship is an opening for a funded Master’s degree programme at the prestigious university for international students.
The Missouri University of Science and Technology scholarship comes with a stipend of $24,000 per year and a 100% tuition waiver for selected candidates.
College Factual ranked Missouri University of Science and Technology as #191 out of 2,576 colleges and universities in the country on its 2022 Best Colleges list. This puts it in the top 10% of all schools in the nation.
The research along with coursework will lead to a M.S. degree in biology. This research will focus on fungal communities in streams and ponds, which are the main microbial decomposers at early stages of breakdown.
The group will examine the structural and functional aspects of decomposing biota under stress from a variety of human activities, including mining and climate change. Work will include time in the field (deploying and collecting samples, measuring field parameters) and the lab (assays of microbial and animal activity, molecular analyses of fungal communities).
