Accelerating Opportunity

Investing in Scholarships

A degree from Saint Louis University opens doors and changes lives.

It’s also expensive. But providing capable students with access to that life-changing education and experience, regardless of their financial circumstances, is an essential part of our Jesuit identity. We are committed to making SLU a possibility for as many students as we can.

Scholarships bring all the benefits of a SLU education within reach. In a marketplace as competitive as higher education, they also help us attract the best students to our campus, elevating the SLU experience even more. Accelerating Excellence: The Campaign for Saint Louis University will expand our ability to provide access to SLU’s world-class education for accomplished students from all socio-economic backgrounds.

Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. An investment in them is an investment in our shared future.
