The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis is based upon the conviction that an educated citizenry is essential to a healthy democracy. In pursuit of this vision, The Scholarship Foundation provides access to postsecondary education to members of the community who otherwise would not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.
Those who share this vision sustain the Foundation’s programs and services through financial contributions of cash and securities, through donations of clothing and accessories to ScholarShop retail operations, and through donations of time as volunteers.
Higher education is a catalyst for positive transformative change. Since its founding, The Scholarship Foundation has distributed more than $58 million in interest-free loans and grants for higher education, providing more than 10,000 students from the St. Louis region with the opportunity to improve their lives and better their communities.
