Graduate Studies

Graduate students have access to a wide variety of student resources at UMKC. Our offerings span from academic to social, all with the aim of helping you achieve your goals.
As the Manager of Nationally Competitive Awards, McLain Hymer helps students identify and apply for prestigious external scholarships and fellowships. These awards can help students fund graduate study, research, and various work and study abroad experiences. Students of all backgrounds, interests, and goals are encouraged to consider these awards, and McLain hopes to provide a positive and developmental application process that will benefit students whether they are chosen as a winner or not. You can contact McLain at, or schedule a meeting with her via Handshake.
