How to Apply
Each February, MOST accepts online pre-applications for our scholarship lottery. Before submitting a pre-application, all interested parents should make sure that they meet the eligibility requirements before submitting a pre-application.
MOST receives hundreds more pre-applications than it can fund, so scholarships are awarded by lottery and are not guaranteed. In March, all pre-applicants will receive information about their application status via U.S. mail and email.
Once a student receives a MOST scholarship, they can remain on the program through grade 8, assuming the family is still financially eligible. During the second semester of eighth grade, current MOST Scholars can apply for the merit-based MOST High School Scholars Program, as long as their families remain financially eligible.
Note: Parents of current MOST scholarship recipients should not go through the pre-application process; they will be able to renew their scholarships through the requalification paperwork given to them by their children’s schools in late February.
