BJC Scholars Fund

The BJC Scholars Fund is intended to serve youth in pursuit of higher education from communities in which BJC hospitals are located. Applicants must be current high school seniors planning to enroll in accredited, nonprofit four-year, in-state public institutions (or any out-of-state school that allows in-state tuition reciprocity). Applicants may pursue a bachelor’s degree in any field or subject. Awarded students will receive a scholarship of up to $10,000 per academic year, which is renewable through graduation or up to ten semesters, provided the student continues to meet eligibility and selection criteria.

To be eligible to be considered for this scholarship applicants must:

  • Be permanent residents (at the time of application) in the following communities served by BJC Hospitals: St. Louis City, St. Louis, St. Charles, Boone, Crawford, and St. Francois Counties in Missouri; Madison County and St. Clair County in Illinois.
  • Be a graduating high school senior.
  • Plan to attend an accredited, nonprofit four-year, in-state public institutions (or any out-of-state school that allows in-state tuition reciprocity).
  • Have earned a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average while in high school.
  • Demonstrate significant financial need, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or similar need calculations. Students with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) over $15,000 must have significant and extenuating circumstances to be considered.

The BJC Scholars Fund is administered by The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis. To be considered, completed applications and all required supporting documents must be submitted by May 15. Awards will be announced in July.
