aprogramKeep Missouri’s A+ Promise

Since 1992, Missouri has made a promise to its students—go to class, get good grades, serve your community, and you’ll earn a scholarship at a community college.

To keep this promise to our students, we are requesting full funding for all eligible students, including those made eligible by the recent expansion to private high schools.

Missouri’s A+ Scholarship Program covers tuition and common fees for two years at a community or technical college in the state. To be eligible, students must have an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher, have at least a 95 percent attendance record for grades 9-12, and perform at least 50 hours of unpaid tutoring or mentoring.

The program covers any remaining tuition and fees after all available, federal, non-loan financial assistance has been applied. This makes the most of state dollars and ensures that more students can benefit from the program.
