    Scholarship Review Process

    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win Missouri scholarships

    Missouri is home to many unique features and landmarks, such as the Gateway Arch, delicious Kansas City barbecue, and the birthplace of Mark Twain. So, how can you win Missouri scholarships? Well, it’s quite simple! You should highlight these unique features of Missouri while connecting to your own unique passions. 

    For example, you can highlight your aspiration to create architecture similar to the Gateway Arch. Doing so not only emphasizes your future goals, but also reveals your love and appreciation for the state of Missouri which should give you some brownie points with the scholarship selection committee. Thinking of majoring in English? What better way to show your passion than mentioning Mark Twain’s witty words of wisdom!

    Scholarship application resources for applying to Missouri scholarships

    Some Missouri scholarships will require you to write an essay about yourself.

    Consider in-state tuition and tuition reciprocity

    In-state tuition provides students with a lower cost compared to out-of-state tuition rates. Additionally, many universities and colleges reserve scholarships and financial aid for in-state students, which helps reduce the cost of attending college for those who live there.

    Here are a few well-known Missouri universities and their in-state vs out-of-state tuition costs:

    Missouri State University

    • In-state tuition: $8,604
    • Out-of-state tuition: $25,723

    • Out-of-state tuition: $30,400

    University of Missouri

    • Out-of-state tuition: $34,322 – $37,922

    How do you get in-state tuition? 

    It is clear that in-state tuition is a cheaper option when compared to out-of-state tuition for Missouri public universities. So, how do you qualify for in-state Missouri tuition? In order to qualify for in-state tuition in Missouri, you need to have established residency and domicile in Missouri. This includes living in Missouri for 12 consecutive months, receiving a reliable income in Missouri or having your parents live in Missouri. In addition, you can obtain a Missouri driver’s license or car registration to further prove your residency. However, the residency requirement may vary depending on the institution, so double check with your intended Missouri school about how to qualify for in-state tuition. 

    Does Missouri have tuition reciprocity?

    Missouri is a member of the Midwest Student Exchange Program which is a limited tuition reciprocity agreement among Midwestern States. This means that favorable college tuition rates in nearby states are typically offered to Missouri residents. However, some restrictions may apply so be sure to research your intended institution and its tuition reciprocity rules.
