A+ Scholarship Program

The primary goal of the A+ Scholarship Program is to ensure that all students who graduate from Missouri high schools are well prepared to pursue advanced education and/or employment. The scholarships are paid for by Missouri taxpayers for Missouri students to attend Missouri post high school opportunities. 

Students that complete A+ are eligible for 2-years tuition* at any MO vocational/technical school or community college.  Many MO 4-year universities offer scholarships based on A+ criteria as well.  Dual credit reimbursement is available under certain conditions.  

All funding and requirements for the A+ Scholarship Program are contingent upon yearly renewal and appropriations by the Missouri General Assembly.
