Missouri Scholarship & Loan Foundation's Access EXTRA Scholarship

The Missouri Scholarship & Loan Foundation’s Access EXTRA Scholarship is a private scholarship for students with a Student Aid Index of 12,000 or less and who have earned a cumulative 3.50 or higher on a 4.0 scale weighted or unweighted GPA through at least seven semesters at a Missouri high school. Please note, in order to qualify the GPA will need to be converted to a 4.0 scale.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to recently announced delays in the 2024-2025 FAFSA post-processing experience for students and colleges, the opening of the 2024-2025 Access EXTRA Scholarship has been delayed until March 15, 2024. The application deadline will be extended to April 15, 2024 and possibly beyond depending on when students begin receiving FAFSA Submission Summaries. The scholarship application is still first-come, first-served as funds are limited. As a reminder, 2024-2025 FASFA Submission Summaries are required for consideration for the Access EXTRA Scholarship. For more information on the updated FAFSA timeline from FSA, click here.
