The University of Missouri is offering two new scholarships to out-of-state students. One is a $7,500 scholarship for non-residents with an ACT score of 25 or 26, whose parents went to school at MU. The other is a $2,500 award for students from a bordering state.
“This initiative will increase the number of students coming to Missouri for their education,” MU Chancellor Alexander Cartwright said. “We know that in many cases, they end up staying in the Show-Me State after graduating and contribute to our state’s economy.”
About one-third of Mizzou’s students are from out of state. Non-resident students pay about $15,000 more annually than in-state students do for a full-time class schedule.
