UMB Financial Corporation (“UMBF”) Charitable Foundation (the “Foundation”) has established the UMB Count-on-More Scholarship Program to assist children of UMBF’s associates who plan to continue their education in college, vocational or technical school programs. Scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice for the upcoming school year.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
Dependent children of any Officer or Director of the Foundation or any Executive Committee member of UMBF (including all of its affiliates and subsidiaries) are not eligible to apply.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $8,000. The program will be administered in full compliance with IRS Revenue Procedure 76-47.
Awards are not renewable, however, students may reapply each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic information, leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.
Applicants will be notified in March.
Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the UMB Financial Corporation Charitable Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
