Kids with Capes

Here is what you need to do next:

Now that you know that you will likely qualify for a MO Scholars ESA Scholarship, you need to find the best Educational Assistance Organization (EAO) to submit a scholarship application.

 

Please be aware that if you qualified based on income, EAOs are required to provide scholarships to applicants with IEPs or who are at the 100% Free and Reduced Lunch Rate FIRST, and then, if there is funding left over, to provide scholarships to students at up to 200% of the Free and Reduced Lunch Rate.

Below you will find a list of all of the EAOs serving the Kansas City area, please pick the one that matches your family's specific needs and click on the link to reach out to the EAO to start the application process. It is very likely the EAO will have you complete an additional prequalification survey before investing time in filling out the actual application

We are also including a list of accredited private schools in the Kansas City area that MAY be able to accept MO Scholars ESA Scholarships. Before the school can accept MO Scholars ESA Scholarships, they must first be approved by an EAO.

 

If you see a school that you are interested in, you should reach out to the school and see what their admissions process is and find out if they have been approved by one of the EAOs in your region.
