Saint Louis University

By investing in a scholarship, you ensure that every deserving student has the opportunity to receive a Saint Louis University education. More than 86 percent of all SLU students receive some form of financial assistance. While this is an impressive figure, we know that the support of our SLU donors reflects more than a percentage on a piece of paper. It is a sound investment that inspires our students to excel in their academic pursuits and live the Jesuit ideal of service for others. 

The College for Public Health & Social Justice has scholarships which assist students in funding their education. Generous support from alumni and friends have established these funds.
