Missouri S&T is launching the Solving for Tomorrow Scholarship for Missouri students to cover all tuition and fees not covered by other scholarships and grants. The new, need-based scholarship is available for first-time freshmen enrolling at Missouri S&T in the fall of 2023.

“We are excited to offer this opportunity to Missouri students who want to pursue a high-quality Missouri S&T education,” says Chancellor Mo Dehghani. “We know that financial aid plays a big role in helping students decide where to attend college. The Solving for Tomorrow Scholarship will help ease the financial burdens of Missouri families so that students can focus on learning rather than worrying about finances. Furthermore, our students are highly sought after by employees. Most students receive multiple job offers and upon graduation, they leave the university ready to join the workforce.”

S&T consistently scores high in national return on investment (ROI) rankings, including:

  • No. 1 university in Missouri for graduate economic success, according to DegreeChoices, 2022
  • No. 1 public university in Missouri for return on investment, according to Georgetown’s Center on Education and Workforce, 2022
  • No. 3 best public university for career placement, according to Princeton Review, 2022
  • No. 5 best college for engineering majors and No. 1 in Missouri, according to Money, 2022

To be eligible for the Solving for Tomorrow Scholarship, students must meet these requirements:

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023
  • Family’s annual income under $60,000
  • Have a minimum ACT superscore of 26 (average of best scores from each subject from multiple test attempts) or SAT score of 1,230
  • Have a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 (at least six semesters)
  • Be enrolled full-time each semester at S&T

The scholarship is renewable for four years for students who maintain a 2.75 cumulative GPA and complete their FAFSA by February 1 each year.
