Columbia College, Stephens College, the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing, and the University of Missouri College of Education select recipients for our annualĀ  Assisting Women’s Achievement Scholarships. They are awarded to women age 25 and older who have successfully completed 60 hours of college work. Scholarships are also awarded through the Assisting Women’s Military Heroes Awards at Columbia College. Through the Columbia Area Career Center, students can receive scholarship assistance in nursing and welding programs, and we work with Welcome Home to provide skills-based training. Assistance League of Mid-Missouri believes that providing financial assistance toward a college degree or skilled training will improve the employment opportunities and financial security for those individuals served. Scholarships have been awarded since 2005.
