Missouri Scholarship & Loan Foundation Programs

Missouri Family Education Loan Program

The Missouri Scholarship and Loan Foundation (MSLF) and the Higher Education Loan Authority of the State of Missouri (MOHELA) are pleased to offer the Missouri Family Education Loan Program (MOFELP). MOFELP is a private student loan program designed to provide borrowing options for Missouri students who have financial need but may not meet the traditional credit requirements for private loans. MSLF is the MOFELP lender, and MOHELA is the servicer for MOFELP loans.

The funds for MOFELP are limited for each academic year and are available on a first come, first served basis. These funds, while available, will be used to make interest free MOFELP loans to students attending Participating Schools who meet the eligibility, underwriting and other requirements.
