Saint Louis University

Saint Louis University has established the SLU Jesuit Community Scholarships.

One student from each of the 27 Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis as well as four Catholic high schools in the Metro East will receive a scholarship to SLU. Annual award amounts will range from $5,000 to full tuition, depending on financial need.

To qualify for SLU Jesuit Community Scholarships, applicants must have the following:

  • A minimum 3.2 cumulative grade point average (GPA)
  • A demonstrated financial need in a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which must be submitted by Feb. 15
  • A 500-word essay on the topic, "What does a Catholic education mean to you?"

Recipients can renew their scholarships each academic year if they maintain full-time enrollment and a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA. They also must complete 20 hours of service annually at their alma mater high schools and students must show proof of service to the Financial Aid office.

Each high school will recommend one candidate for the award.

Parents or students who would like more information about the SLU Jesuit Community Scholarships should contact their high school's guidance office.
