An Educational Assistance Organization (EAO) is a nonprofit organization that, after approval by the Missouri State Treasurer’s Office, can receive qualified contributions from individuals and businesses to establish MOScholars scholarship accounts for qualified Missouri students. The EAO establishes and maintains relationships with eligible schools to create a network of schools students may use scholarship funds to attend.

Per statute, the Treasurer’s Office can certify up to ten EAOs per year, with no more than six having their principal place of business in any of the following: Greene County, Jackson County, St. Charles County, St. Louis County, or St. Louis City.
