Scholarships touch the future!


Inspired donors create opportunities that support the educational aspirations of the kinds of students that mean the most to them. The St. Louis Community Foundation has 75 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. Overseen by a committee of scholarship providers, funders and St. Louis Graduates, Scholarship Central has over 130 scholarship and interest-free loan opportunities for students in the St. Louis region and across Missouri.
