The SLU Mission Grant Program 

The SLU Mission Grant Program is ready to begin.  The process is simple; the possibilities are endless. Are you interested?

What exactly is a "SLU Mission Grant"?

Any full-or part-time SLU staff or faculty member, or full-time student may apply for a Mission Grant, between $50 and $300, to help support activities that promote the Mission of Saint Louis University.

Our mission as a Catholic, Jesuit university, is the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity.  You can find the complete Saint Louis University Mission Statement at (

Why do we offer this program? 

  • Because we believe our Mission lives most powerfully in the day-to-day lives and activities of our students, staff, faculty, and administrators, inspiring our many stories as a University community;
  • Because we believe there are many different ways to be Catholic and Jesuit;
  • Because we believe that creative grassroots-level explorations and promotions of our Mission may be much more likely to occur, flourish and be sustained with seed money.

What type of projects and activities can we fund?

You tell us--what are you doing, or what do you want to do...
