Southern Match Creates New Scholarships

A total of 30 new, endowed scholarships for students at Missouri Southern have been established through the Southern Match scholarship initiative.

The limited-time program was launched in April by the Missouri Southern Foundation in order to increase the value of new scholarships.

The Foundation set aside $200,000 for the program, which placed an additional $10,000 into each newly endowed scholarship created.

Southern Match was initially limited to 20 new scholarships, but the program yielded more inquiries about participating. In August, the board approved additional funding, resulting in more scholarships being created.

The 30 scholarships will provide assistance to students in a wide range of areas – from accounting and pre-dental to nursing and athletics.
