The Jewish Federation
Jewish Federation of St. Louis is the Jewish community’s central philanthropic, planning and community-building organization. Founded in 1901, we are one of the region’s most respected and effective nonprofit organizations. Our mission is to mobilize the Jewish community and its human and financial resources to preserve and enhance Jewish life in St. Louis, in Israel and around the world. We help ensure that every individual in our community can live their life with dignity, meaning and purpose.
Each year the Jewish Federation distributes a number of academic scholarships to St. Louis area students through six named funds. These scholarships are open to residents of the greater St. Louis metropolitan area, with a preference given to Jewish applicants.
