COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS 
Colleges and universities have their own scholarships to award.  Visit our college scholarships page for links to MO & KS colleges. Many universities offer Automatic Scholarships based on a first year student’s ACT score, GPA, and/or Class Rank.

3.0 GPA + 24 ACT = $12,000

In addition, many Automatic Scholarships are renewable as long as you maintain a certain GPA, and there is typically little or no paperwork necessary for these scholarships.

NATIONAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS
Thousands of national scholarships are available to students.  Many of these scholarships go unclaimed every year because no one applies for them.
