Application - Missouri Courage Scholarship

Due March 31st, 2017 - The Missouri Courage Scholarship (MCS) and associated organizations will be awarding up to $15,000 in scholarships to college-bound seniors from Missouri high schools. To simplify the process for students, the organizations have developed one application. Awards are open to all students graduating from a Missouri high school. Scholarships will be paid directly to the college/university/vocational school of their choice, where they must be enrolled as a full-time student.

Applicants' information will only be shared with scholarship committee members of MCS and associated organizations. Applications will be comprehensively evaluated on a variety of metrics including academic achievement, school involvement, community engagement, diversity, demonstrations of courage, and commitment to enhancing the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals and other groups that have historically faced discrimination.

Scholarship amounts may vary between $500 and $3000. If you have questions or difficulty accessing the application, please email admin@courage-scholarship.org. Note: we may request additional information to help us determine final recipients (e.g., transcript, FAFSA information, etc).

Additionally, scholarship winners will be enrolled in our Courage Leadership Program (CLP). The goal of CLP is to identify ways to enhance the lives of students in Missouri. Courage Scholars are uniquely positioned to be leaders for needed change and advocacy for both high school and college students. As part of CLP, Courage Scholars will identify a current issue affecting students in Missouri and work together to develop a project of their choosing and design to address the challenge. The MCS Co-Chairs and Courage Fellow will serve as resources for Courage Scholars to help projects reach their maximum potential. Student's who desire not to participate in CLP will not be penalized during the scholarship review process.
