Missouri House panel to consider changes to Access scholarships

Tuesday, March 2, 2010 | 9:52 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — A Missouri House panel is set to consider a bill changing the allocation of Access Missouri scholarship money to students at public and private universities.

Access Missouri scholarships for students at private colleges are currently almost twice as large as those given to students at public universities.

The legislation would eliminate the difference and set the same maximum scholarship — $2,850 — for students at public and private institutions. The change would take effect starting in 2015.

The House Higher Education Committee planned to take up the bill Tuesday. A similar measure has been approved by a Senate committee.
