Thankfully, this year’s Scholarship Foundation Policy Fellows include two St. Louis University law students. Aja McCoy is a third-year and Sara Rutherford is a first-year. Together, they drafted a set of comments in response to proposed revisions in regulations on the A+ Scholarship Program.

While advocacy often focuses on pending legislation, much gets decided or determined in corollary processes of rulemaking and appropriations. A review of the memorandum Aja and Sara have prepared reinforces the importance of vigilance in procedural matters as well as legislative debate.
The students of The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis are amazing.
