BOLIVAR, Mo. – Southwest Baptist University will benefit from a recent grant of $20,000 to the Missouri Colleges Fund (MCF) from Edward Jones. This grant underwrites the Edward Jones Scholars Program with scholarships to students attending one of the 17 MCF member schools majoring in business-related studies. The scholarships will be awarded by the member schools on the basis of financial need to outstanding qualified students. 

MCF member schools are independent baccalaureate degree-granting liberal arts and comprehensive colleges and universities in the state of Missouri. Their income is derived primarily from private sources.

The MCF was incorporated in 1952 as a partnership of private enterprise and the member independent colleges and universities in the Show-Me State. The Fund is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt corporation; therefore, all contributions to the Fund are tax-deductible up to the limits prescribed by the law.

More information about MCF can be found online at www.mocollegesfund.org.

Southwest Baptist University is a leader among private universities in truly integrating Christ-centered academic pursuits with comprehensive professional programs at an affordable price.
