(KMOV) – The University of Missouri – St. Louis just got more money to find scholarships. The money could provide full rides for 10 students a year.
The new program is designed to help local high school students, especially first generation college students.
Emerson helped fund the program.
It’s an effort to encourage talented students to stay in St. Louis and pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering and math.
The scholarship program begins next fall.
Along with financial support, students get internships and a mentor.
