The Community Foundation of the Ozarks is offering a record number of scholarships to students across southern Missouri interested in pursuing advanced education opportunities.
This year's scholarship awards and renewals, which are made possible by donors, are valued at nearly $925,000. This amount is up from about $815,000 awarded in the 2011 scholarship cycle. These represent more than 220 named scholarship funds, with many awarding multiple scholarships to students across southern Missouri.
Information about the scholarship opportunities is available at www.cfozarks.org/cfoscholarships, or students can contact the high school counseling office. Application deadlines vary, with the earliest due on March 1.
