THE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION’S NOVEMBER 15 APPLICATION DEADLINE IS FAST APPROACHING
ST. LOUIS, MO (September 19, 2012) ─ The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis’ interest-free loan application deadline is Thursday, November 15, 2012. The Scholarship Foundation offers qualified students the opportunity to apply for renewable, interest-free loans of up to $7,000 per academic year, based on financial need, academic potential, and strength of character. High school students, college students, and nontraditional applicants pursuing their first bachelor’s degree are encouraged to apply at www.sfstl.org.
The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis is a nonprofit organization that provides access to postsecondary education to eligible St. Louis area students who would not otherwise have the financial means to attend accredited two-year or four-year colleges, or technical schools. Applicants must reside in: St. Louis City and St. Louis County; the Missouri counties of Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, St. Charles and Warren; and the Illinois counties of Clinton, Jersey, Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair. Interest-free loans and grants are awarded to students who have graduated high school or earned a GED and are planning to enroll in approved, accredited postsecondary programs. To be eligible, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. legal resident and be a permanent resident of the St. Louis metropolitan area for at least two years prior to the date of application.
Students can apply for funding by completing an online “general application” which enables applicants to simultaneously apply for The Scholarship Foundation’s interest-free loan and a variety of external scholarships offered by several providers on the St. Louis Graduates website (www.stlouisgraduates.org). Upon completion of the general application, applicants must go on and complete additional questions for each scholarship to which they’re matched.
The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis, a nonprofit organization founded in 1920, is based upon the conviction that an educated citizenry is essential to a democracy. More than 7,000 students have been awarded more than $48 million in interest-free loans and $2.8 million in grants by the Foundation since 1920.
