In partnership with Sallie Mae and the MOST 529 Education Plan, Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick will host a free webinar focused on finding scholarship opportunities and paying for higher education. The webinar will be held via Zoom at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10.
November is National Scholarship Month, which raises awareness about scholarship opportunities for current and future college students. For those seeking scholarships to pay for higher education, November is an ideal time to begin the search and application process, according to a press release.
Earlier this year, Fitzpatrick launched the Show Me the Money Scholarship Search Engine, which connects Missouri students with scholarship and grant opportunities tailored to their skills. The search engine was made possible through a partnership with Sallie Mae and gathers more than 6 million scholarships worth over $30 billion in one place. The search engine can be found on Fitzpatrick’s Financial Literacy Portal.
The free virtual event will feature speakers from Sallie Mae, a nationwide consumer banking institution specializing in private student loans, and MOST, Missouri’s 529 Education Plan.
