To a lucky, local student enrolling in their freshman year at University of Missouri-Columbia next fall, the Parkland Area Tigers chapter of Mizzou Alumni Association will offer a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000/year for four years). The award will be dispersed in $500 increments each semester, if the student maintains the required qualifications.
The scholarship application and minimal requirements are located at www.mizzou.com/scholarship, and the deadline to submit is Feb. 1. After a screening process by MAA and the local alumni chapter, a student will be chosen by April 1.
Applicants must be accepted to Mizzou and have a student ID number issued, which should be indicated on the application. They need to be in the top 20 percent of their high school graduation class or achieve a minimum of 26 on the ACT, enroll as a full-time, 12-credit-hours student during each semester of their freshman year, and achieve a minimum 2.75 GPA during fall semester freshman year.
For more information, contact Parkland Area Tigers’ scholarship committee chairman, Luke Roussin, at 573-756-4547 or by email at email@example.com.
Parkland Area Tigers welcomes all MU alumni and supporters who live in the counties of Washington, Ste. Genevieve, Madison, Iron and St. Francois to join the association.
