Enterprise Opportunity Driver Scholarship

The Enterprise Opportunity Driver Scholarship program, funded by the generous gift from the Enterprise Holdings Foundation to the UMSL College of Business Administration, was developed to give back to the communities where Enterprise customers and employees live and work.
