The SumnerOne Scholarship program will award renewable $2,500 scholarships annually to one or more SumnerOne employees who has/have worked for at least one (1) year at the time of application deadline and are enrolled or plan to enroll part- or full-time in a Business or Technology program of study. Each recipient will demonstrate financial need at an accredited, nonprofit, post-secondary technical/trade school, two-year college or four-year college/university he/she attends, or will attend in the United States.

To be eligible, the applicant must

The St. Louis community Foundation is responsible for evaluation, selection and determination of award amount. Selection is made on quality of the essay, letter of recommendation, determination of financial need, and consideration of unusual circumstances. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Please answer all questions that apply to you, even if they are not marked “required."

Recipients may be considered for renewal for up to three additional undergraduate years, if a renewal application is submitted by the deadline and academic and financial eligibility criteria continue to be met. A link to apply for renewal of the SumnerOne scholarship will be emailed each spring to the email address we have on file for eligible recipients. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the St. Louis Community Foundation has current contact information on file (mailing address, email address, phone number and institution of enrollment).
