ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Missouri Courage Scholarship (MCS) announced today the establishment of its first Board of Directors.

 

 ScholarshipBoard"When we started our organization in 2015, it was funded and organized with a very grassroots approach," MCS said via press release. "As the first, and largest, state-wide LGBTQ scholarship organization in Missouri, we’ve awarded over $25,000 in scholarships to college-bound high school seniors over the past two years."

 
"In January 2017, we received our 501c3 not-for-profit designation," MCS continued. "As we’ve grown, our processes and organization have become more formalized to support our goals to reach more students, establish more partnerships, and ultimately award more scholarships. The creation of our Board of Directors will support our long-term expansion."


The MCS Board includes a wide range of talented individuals, from small business owners to former St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguers. The board features people who work in the Missouri legislature, PhD students, lawyers, theatre producers, nurses, and social workers.
