Missouri students come up short with new aid plan
Reported by Matthew Franck – St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Missouri’s supply of scholarships for needy students isn’t keeping up with demand, even after pumping $45 million into college financial aid.
As a result, the state has lowered the maximum awards available to students through the new Access Missouri Scholarship by 30 percent, compared with original projections.
