Missouri State University is waiving its undergraduate application fee. It’s an effort to improve access to higher education, according to university officials. The school also announced Wednesday it’s joining the Common Application, which allows students to enter their information one time while applying to multiple schools.
And MSU officials say they’re expanding a scholarship for Boys & Girls Clubs participants. The scholarship was created in May for participants in Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield. It has been expanded to include participants from all Missouri clubs.
Those awards include the MSU/BGC Youth of the Year Scholarship valued at $4,000, and the MSU/BGC Freshman Scholarship valued at $2,000.
The scholarships can be renewed for up to three years.
MSU recently announced it’s offering free dual credit to qualifying students who are eligible for free and reduced lunch and a scholarship for “alumni” Little Brothers and Little Sisters of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri.
