The Cole County Chapter of the Mizzou Alumni Association has attained Capstone distinction with the MAA.
This recognition is the highest level of achievement for regional alumni chapters, and the chapter will be awarded with additional MAA support and scholarship funding, chapter officials said.
Over the past five years, the Cole County MAA chapter has awarded $32,000 in scholarship funding to local students attending the University of Missouri, chapter officials said in a news release. The new Capstone distinction will allow the chapter to distribute an additional $4,000 in scholarship funding to area students for the 2020-21 academic year.
Current and incoming MU students from the Cole County area may apply for merit-based scholarship funding from the Cole County MAA Chapter at mizzou.com/scholarships. Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are due Dec. 1.
