How to Apply

Each year, MOST accepts online pre-applications for new scholarships during the month of February. Before submitting a pre-application, all interested parents should make sure that they meet the eligibility requirements before submitting a pre-application.

Because MOST receives hundreds more pre-applications than it can fund, new applications for scholarships are awarded by lottery. All pre-applicants will receive information about their application status via email by mid-March.

Once a student receives a MOST scholarship, he or she can remain on the program through the 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 the 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 re-qualification paperwork given to them by their children’s schools in late February.
