MSSU to give $1k scholarships to Joplin students

JOPLIN, MO. (AP) – Missouri Southern State University plans to offer $1,000 scholarships to Joplin area students who were sophomores, juniors and seniors as of May of this year.

The scholarships are being offered to students at Joplin High School, McAuley High School, College Heights Christian School and Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School.

The university said in a news release Monday that all the students will get $1,000 each for the first academic year after they graduate.

The university said the effort is intended to help Joplin rebuild from a devastating May 22 tornado by encouraging young people to stay in the city.

The scholarships represent about 25 percent of the current annual cost for a full-time student at Missouri Southern.
