The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis

The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis (SFSTL) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1920, and it is rooted in the conviction that an educated society is essential to a healthy democracy. SFSTL provides access to postsecondary education to members of our community who otherwise would not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals. SFSTL contributes to enlightened public policy through advocacy for its vision of postsecondary educational opportunity without financial barriers.
