Private Donor Scholarships

While Missouri Western is pleased to notify our students of scholarships offered by private donors, we ask that you exercise caution. Many scholarship scams exist. You should thoroughly research each scholarship opportunity BEFORE applying.

Important Nevers:

  • NEVER provide your credit/debit card information when applying for a scholarship.
  • NEVER apply for a scholarship that charges an application fee.

Don’t become a victim of a scam or identity theft. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
