Memphis Opportunity Scholarship Trust (MOST)

Giving parents a choice. Giving children a chance.

Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Abbey Cowens, Executive Director of Memphis Opportunity Scholarship Trust (MOST), who highlights their mission to give Memphis-area families the opportunity to send their children to the schools of their choice by offering partial, need-based scholarships to qualifying families who wish to send their children to private schools. Founded in 1998, MOST has awarded more than $21 million in scholarships to nearly 3,500 students in prekindergarten through grade 12. During the interview, Cowens talks about the timing and process for the scholarships, the impact, and how the community can support their efforts.

By providing scholarships for qualifying students to attend private schools, MOST promotes access to great schools for all children in the Memphis area — regardless of their ZIP codes or family incomes.
