Instructor Scholarships at SLU

Saint Louis University offers scholarships to 1818 instructors continuing their education at SLU. 

SLU Scholarship Eligibility Criteria

Scholarship funds can only be used if the Partner school is offering 1818 Program courses in the academic year in which the scholarships are provided. Additionally, participating faculty must be approved 1818 Program faculty and be teaching at least one 1818 Program course in each academic year for which the scholarship is provided.

  • Note: As SLU focuses its limited resources on improved teaching and learning in 1818 courses, scholarships for 1818 Program Coordinators and other administrators at Partner high schools have been discontinued. Exceptions for those currently enrolled in SLU graduate programs, or who have been granted past SLU scholarships, have been developed and will be shared upon request.

Additionally, courses eligible for scholarships must be focused on the disciplinary or interdisciplinary academic content of the 1818 course(s) the 1818 instructor has been approved to offer. Typically these are courses offered as part of established master’s and doctoral degrees in the specific discipline/interdisciplinary area.

Courses in related disciplines, and courses focused specifically on the teaching of the disciplinary/ interdisciplinary academic content of the respective 1818 course(s), may be considered per the discretion of the appropriate SLU academic department.

Courses focused on curriculum and instruction generally (or on broad C&I categories such as “humanities” or “social sciences”), and courses in educational administration/leadership, are not eligible for reimbursement.

SLU Scholarship Award Limits

Eligible participants may be awarded tuition scholarships that fund the SLU tuition for up to six graduate credits in the academic year. 

Applying for Scholarships at SLU

Scholarship applications must be submitted before the start of the term according to the following deadlines:

Apply for an Instructor Scholarship at SLU

If a scholarship is awarded, 1818 Partner constituents may apply for admission to SLU as either degree/certificate seeking or non-degree seeking (“unclassified”) students. The application process and admission requirements for eligible 1818 Partner constituents are no different than for all other prospective SLU students.
