Donate to MOST Policy Fellows

Before MOST can begin working with the Missouri legislature, we must first establish a governing structure for the program, grow legislative support, and acquire funding for the planning process and a sustainable fellowship program support. Planning funds will include stipends for the individuals coordinating partner meetings and legislative research, as well as potential legal fees associated with placement logistics and non-profit organization formation.
