Scholarship Program

Missouri SBDC at UMKC in partnership with generous sponsors offers scholarships for a number of trainings. We recognize that many beginning and current business owners may not have the funds available to attend our trainings when they have a desire to do so. Opportunities for micro-grants will be outlined here when available. Scholarships are allotted on a first come, first serve basis.
