Special UWRC Programs
UWRC has two in-house programs for area students. Students in all schools in Randolph County, Middle Grove, Madison, and Salisbury could qualify for our programs, depending on need.
These programs are not funded by Workplace Campaigns. Both Coats for Kids and the Dual Credit Scholarship are funded through private donations from corporations and individuals above and beyond their Workplace Donation.
Students and families can make the request from their schools. We do not provide coats to individuals, you must make the request through your child's school.
Area high school juniors and seniors who are enrolled in Dual Credit classes and have a financial need can apply for our Dual Credit Scholarship. Scholarships are awarded twice a year. Students are awarded only one scholarship unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Applications can be found from your high school guidance counselor or here.
A student who is currently eligible and enrolled for Dual Credit Classes, demonstrate financial need, share their LIVE UNITED vision.
The student must have a physical address within Randolph County, Madison, Salisbury, or Middle Grove.
The student must be attending one of the following schools: Higbee R-VIII, Madison C-3, Moberly High School, Northeast Randolph County R-IV, or Westran R-I.
