Scholarship Programs

Missouri SBDC at UMKC in partnership with our generous sponsors currently 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. Scholarships are allotted on a first come, first serve basis. For questions about any of our scholarships, including which one you should apply for, please contact elevationlab@umkc.edu
