Title: Access Missouri Scholarship Program
Vote Smart's Synopsis:
Vote to pass a bill that establishes the Access Missouri Scholarship Program that allows Missouri students with at least grade point average of 2.5 (on the 4.0 scale) to earn a $1,000 scholarship to an in-state university, and provides limitations on increases in funding for institutions of higher education until the scholarships are fully funded. The bill also prohibits any increase in tuition or fees above the annual increase in the consumer price index at state four-year institutions of higher education from being approved.
