Women Legislators of Missouri are encouraging young women set to graduate from high school to apply for a $500 college scholarship. Each year the group selects one student from each of Missouri’s congressional districts to receive the award.  MO House members hope to spread the word about the scholarship opportunity so that female students from all parts of the state will apply.

“This is a great opportunity for any young woman who is interested in continuing her educational career to receive some valuable financial assistance,” said Representative Love.

The Women Legislators of Missouri Caucus created the senior scholarship program to provide financial assistance to students on the basis of leadership, academics and community service.
