A special provision from the Missouri General Assembly makes state-appropriated funds available for tuition waivers for displaced homemakers. Displaced homemakers are divorced, widowed, separated, or have disabled spouses, who must prepare for paid employment. They have worked primarily without pay to care for the home and family. Displaced homemakers are generally women, but there are men who fit the definition and have been served with these funds. The tuition waivers are used to offset the cost of tuition for eligible recipients to enroll in a long-term career training program.
