2018 EOA/MO-KAN-NE Scholarships


EOA and MKN are committed to holistically assisting in the development of approximately 200,000 students served in the various TRIO programs within its boundaries. The Association has been very proactive in adopting cutting-edge measures in reaching out to first-generation, low-income and students with disabilities. Annually, EOA distributes several scholarships and awards to deserving recipients that have overcome a myriad of personal obstacles.

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 scholarship competitions are now live. Please use the following links to apply. Links to instructions for staff and for students can also be found below.


For your convenience, the MO-KAN-NE Board of Directors scholarship application on Scholarship Central will be used for both the MO-KAN-NE and EOA Board of Directors scholarships. If your student has already completed the application on the EOA website, I will be contacting you directly. Please contact Tameka Herrion at with questions or for assistance applying.
