At the Trulaske College of Business, it is our goal to ensure that every student has access to an outstanding business education. We offer a variety of resources to provide support to students through mentorship, scholarships, and educational tools and opportunities. Through programs like the Allen Access Program, Heartland Scholars Academy, Vasey Academy and Trulaske Student Emergency Fund, Mizzou business students are equipped with everything they need for success — in the classroom and after
Allen Access Program
By utilizing the Allen Access Fund, the Allen Access Program seeks to help under-resourced students find success through scholarships and career-readiness initiatives. In addition, this program also focuses on outreach in Missouri to expose more middle and high school students to the opportunities that exist at Trulaske and at Mizzou.
Heartland Scholars Academy
Established in 2018, the Heartland Scholars Academy assists first-generation, rural students as they transition to Mizzou in pursuit of studying business. Over the course of four years, this program provides financial scholarship, dedicated advising, career coaching and business seminars.
The Vasey Academy, established in 19997, provides talented first-generation and under-resourced students from urban areas* with various opportunities to achieve academic success at Mizzou. Through a carefully designed set of mentoring experiences and exposure to corporate executives, students create the foundation for their professional network while learning more about the business world.
