Financial Literacy Portal: Show Me the Money: Scholarship & Grants Search Engine

Show Me the Money Search Engine

Higher education is expensive and costs continue to increase. When paying for higher education, financial experts recommend considering “free money” options (money you don’t have to pay back) like personal savings and scholarships or grants before taking out costly student loans.

The Show Me the Money Scholarship and Grant Search Engine connects Missouri students with scholarship and grant opportunities tailored to their skills and interests. Through a partnership with the Treasurer’s Office and Sallie Mae, a nationwide consumer banking institution specializing in student loans, more than 6 million scholarships worth over $30 billion are accessible in one place for Missouri students.

What is it?

  • Unlike a simple internet search, the Show Me the Money Scholarship and Grant Search Engine matches Missourians to scholarships based on their skills, activities, and interests from a database of over 6 million scholarships and grants. Essentially, this search engine adds filters to your search for scholarship money, ensuring a higher success rate for you.

Who can use the search engine?

  • Students qualified to set up Scholarship Search accounts include:
    • High school students
    • Undergraduate students
    • Graduate students
    • Returning adult students

How does it work?

  • The search engine is powered by the profile you build. The more information you provide (like your skills, activities, and interests), the more success you will have identifying potential scholarships.
