Nonprofit, competency-based university announces scholarships designed to help students make the smart choice in higher education

ST. LOUIS — To help students afford investing in their future with education, WGU Missouri is now offering Smart Choice Scholarships—each valued at up to $2,000—$500 per six-month term for up to four terms.

Each Smart Choice Scholarship is open to new and enrolling students in any of the more than 60 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs offered at WGU Missouri. Applications are now being accepted for these scholarships through September 30 at

To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must be officially admitted to WGU Missouri, complete the scholarship application, and be interviewed by a WGU scholarship counselor. While WGU Missouri will award multiple scholarships, recipients will be selected based on their academic records, financial need, and readiness for online study at WGU Missouri, among other considerations.

"WGU Missouri’s flexible program easily fit into my busy life,” said Joseph Mobley, a recent WGU Missouri graduate. “I was able to study when it was convenient for me and the tuition was extremely affordable."

WGU Missouri’s competency-based learning model allows students to study at times that work for their schedule, moving quickly through what they already know so they can focus on what they still need to learn. This allows many students to accelerate their studies, finishing faster, which saves not only time, but money.
