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 about 60 scholarship programs that impacted over 600 students last year with awards totaling over $1.4 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 nearly 100 scholarship and interest-free loan opportunities for students in the St. Louis region and across Missouri.
