Missouri Baptist University has launched a bold scholarship opportunity aimed at helping students who attend St. Louis Community College (SLCC) continue their education in an affordable manner.
Beginning next fall, SLCC students who transfer to MBU may qualify for up to $9,000 a year in academic scholarships.
"This initiative is an opportunity for MBU to invest in the rich experiences our transfer students bring to our University," said Aaron Black, MBU director of admissions. "We are committed to making sure an MBU education can become a reality, particularly for those students who have a desire to continue their pursuit of a bachelor's degree."
SLCC students interested in transferring to MBU with a minimum of 48 credit hours from SLCC and a GPA of 2.5 are eligible for the $8,000 renewable scholarship. Members of Phi Theta Kappa, a collegiate honor society, may receive an additional $1,000.
