- demonstration of unmet financial need at the undergraduate level, and
- the strength of the essay and recommendations.
Selection of the recipients and the scholarship amount, ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, will be determined by the St. Louis Community Foundation from information provided by the applicant, the school, the applicant’s family and the post secondary institution. Scholarships will be used to meet unmet need or to reduce or replace loans or campus work.
The only financial information that will be released to the sponsoring organization will be the award amount.
Please note that because the award amounts are based on financial need that can change from year to year, and available funding, the amount of this scholarship award may change if a recipient applies for renewal awards in years to come.
Each applicant will be notified online in Scholarship Central of his or her status in the competition by early June. Recipients will receive a letter about their award.
The Boniface Foundation Scholarship Program is administered by the St. Louis Community Foundation. Eligibility, financial need, award recipients and award amount will be determined by the St. Louis Community Foundation.
