MO SCHOLARSHIP & LOAN FOUNDATION
Not only is the MO Scholarship & Loan Foundation a donor to KC Scholars, it provides needed support to college students statewide. The Foundation increased funding awards to assist students impacted by COVID-19.
Director’s Choice Emergency Grant Program
This emergency grant was created to help students persist to completion through an urgent situation. We want to remove the barriers that arise throwing students off course. Students attending participating Missouri institutions are generally identified by the Financial Aid Director who works with key departments within the institution to build awareness of this resource. Any questions can be sent to email@example.com, as we want to help!
Finish Line Degree Completion Grant Program
The Finish Line Degree Completion Grant complements institutional resources to help students re-enroll and complete their degrees. MSLF piloted the program in 2019-2020 at public institutions, and we are expanding the program for the 2020-2021 academic year to private institutions that want to participate. Generally, students are referred to this program by their school and can complete the application at www.myscholarshipcentral.org (then key word Finish Line).
Missouri Family Education Loan Program
MOFELP is an interest-free, fee-free private student loan program designed to provide a borrowing option for Missouri students who have financial need and may not meet the traditional credit requirements for private loans. To qualify, students must have an EFC of $12,000 or less and meet certain academic requirements. For more information, visit mslf.mohela.com.
In addition to the programs highlighted above, MSLF offers two scholarship programs, one for incoming high school freshman and another for current college students. For 2020-2021, those scholarship applications closed on June 30. Each year, these applications can be found on Scholarship Central. By the way, Scholarship Central is a statewide resource for students to find multiple scholarships opportunities in ONE place. And Scholarship Central enhancements for the 2021-2022 scholarship process are underway. Scholarship providers throughout the state of Missouri are collaborating to truly make Scholarship Central a resource to find ALL private scholarships in one place. More to come on this project in the coming months!
Thank you for all you do for students! If you have any questions about any of our programs, please don’t hesitate to reach to Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org or 636.733.3716.
