The state of Missouri provides scholarship funds to eligible graduates of A+ designated schools. The funds may be used at participating 2-year colleges or vocational/technical schools in Missouri. The A+ scholarship will reimburse tuition and general fees (AFTER Pell grant funding has been applied). The amount of the scholarship may be reduced if there are insufficient state appropriations.
