Tuition and Affordability

Missouri Scholars Program


Transfer students from public schools and students with an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) may be eligible for a $6,375 scholarship through the MOScholars Program if they meet the criteria outlined below.
  • Transfer students must be income eligible (see chart) and have attended public school for at least one semester in the past 12 months.
  • Any students regardless of income, who have an IEP issued in the last 36 months developed under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are also eligible. The IEP must be issued by a public school.


Families must fill out the application from an authorized Educational Assistance Organization. Once approved, families will be emailed a link to the state's full application issued through FACTS. This will include uploading the appropriate tax returns, utility bills, and IEP documentation or public school transcripts.
Once verified, families will be notified if they qualify for one of two rounds:
  • Round 1: Students with IEP/ISPs or transfer students with a household income below 100% of the free and reduced lunch threshold ($51k for a family of 4)
  • Round 2: Transfer students with a household income between 100-200% of the free and reduced lunch threshold ($51k-$102k for a family of 4)
Round 1 students will receive awards first. Round 2 students will be awarded as funding becomes available from donors looking to redirect their state tax liability into these scholarships.


Once the scholarship is awarded, parents will have an account created with ClassWallet, a PayPal-like digital wallet the state has contracted with to manage scholarship funds. The $6,375 will be deposited into the account for the parent to direct toward tuition. The awarding organization will approve the tuition request and transfer the money to the eligible school.
