Establish a Scholarship Fund


Scholarship programs created by donors like you impact students like Shawn Williams, who relied on the Bertha Black Rhoda scholarship as he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Missouri State University.

They inspire alumni like those of the Ferguson-Florissant School District, who raised over $1,000 for the Eichenberger Music Scholarship, and businesses like Eckert’s, which donated over $10,000 to the Friends of Saint Louis Municipal School of Nursing Scholarship.

The St. Louis Community Foundation has 80 scholarship programs that impacted 600 students last year with awards totaling $1.6 million.

Most of our opportunities are available on Scholarship Central, a regional resource of private scholarship programs that we are proud to have been a part of creating. Scholarship Central has awarded over 4,000 awards totaling $13.5 million in scholarships and interest-free student loans in the 2021–2022 school year.
