The Trans World Airlines Scholarship is a University of Missouri System award. Students must be currently enrolled full-time as Missouri residents as classified by the Registrar’s Office for tuition purposes. The Trans World Airlines scholarship fund was established to fund students who are performing research in areas which will impact environmental issues. Students will be selected based on academic accomplishments as well as their research interests. Proceeds from the Trans World Airlines scholarship fund will be distributed to two law students ($7,000 each) selected by the law schools and to five additional students ($7,000 each) selected by a systemwide selection committee. The law schools may select more students at a reduced scholarship amount. Since there are two separate selections, law students are encouraged to apply through their respective law school as well as through the systemwide competition.
