Other scholarship resources

Several financial organizations provide online scholarship resources and search services. The best time to use them is one year prior to college enrollment. The MU Office of Student Financial Aid does not endorse or support particular private scholarships or scholarship search sites.  This page only serves as a way to publicize the available resources the office is aware of and in no way endorses the companies.  The MU Office of Student Financial Aid cannot guarantee the accuracy of these scholarship searches but recommends trying them if no cost is involved. If you are an incoming freshman, talk with your high school guidance counselor about other scholarships options.

When searching for private scholarships, please remember to look out for signs of scams. Never give money, credit card numbers or bank account information to any entity promising scholarships.
