Mr. Kauffman specified basic guidelines, which include that scholarships are to be awarded to female, unmarried, non-smoking graduates of Mercer County, Missouri, high schools who have evidence of need. Additionally, the recipients must be enrolled for and pass at least 12 hours of credit in an accredited Missouri college or university and maintain a certain grade point average. Each recipient has certified that they meet the criteria established by Mr. Kauffman and the Board of Directors.

Applicants must have successfully filed the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by June 30, 2024, to be eligible for the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 semesters.
