Missouri’s Community College Scholarship Program Isn’t A+ For Low-Income StudentsSeptember 6, 2019 |

With college costs rising every year, Missouri’s A+ Scholarship Program is a bargain – 50 hours of tutoring in exchange for two free years of community college.
College access advocates, however, argue that the money isn’t going to the students who need it most.
“We know there are people who utilize A+ who come from families that make $100,000 or $200,000 a year,” said Karissa Anderson, the advocacy director for the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis.
