Students Helping Students Scholarship

Saint Louis University's Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is proud to promote the Students Helping Students Scholarship. This fund provides immediate one-time assistance to SLU Billikens who find themselves in temporary need of additional funds to stay enrolled in classes and make progress towards graduation. The scholarship is awarded once per academic year during the spring semester.

While the awards are made possible through generous gifts from students, alumni and friends of the University, the scholarship is funded primarily by gifts from SLU current students.

Scholarship Guidelines


You must have a current FAFSA* (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application on file. You must not have received an award from the Students Helping Students Scholarship in the same academic year. Awards are not made during summer sessions. You must have taken all offered financial aid, including any loans available through Financial Aid.

*International Students who do not have a FAFSA on file are encouraged to apply, however, please be sure you have exhausted all financial aid available.

Giving Opportunities

Part of STAT's mission is to build philanthropy awareness on campus, and therefore we host multiple opportunities throughout the year for students to give back to Saint Louis University and assist fellow Billikens in need through the Students Helping Students Scholarship. Past events include Espresso Your Love and Gobble Grams.

If you are interested in supporting this emergency fund to support other Billikens in need, please consider giving to the scholarship fund.
