St. Anthony’s Medical Center Foundation Academic Excellence Scholarship

The St. Anthony’s Medical Center Foundation Academic Excellence Scholarship is open to high school seniors who are dependent children of the Medical Center’s full time and regular part time staff (who have been employed at least one year) who have achieved academic excellence and will be full time undergraduate students at a regionally accredited four year Missouri college or university or at any of Southern Illinois University’s five campuses or the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign. Employees of SAMC are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.

Recipients may reapply for scholarship consideration for a maximum of four years of funding provided they continue to meet eligibility requirements and maintain a 3.5 cumulative grade point average in a full time course of study.

Five awards of $10,000 are available for the coming academic year. This opportunity for the children of St. Anthony’s employees is made possible through the generosity of the St. Anthony’s Medical Center Foundation Board of Directors.

Eligibility

  1. dependent of full time or regular part time employees of St. Anthony’s Medical Center

    Employees of St. Anthony’s Medical Center are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.

Selection
Applications will be evaluated on the basis of

  • past academic performance and potential for continued success,
  • the quality of the essay, and
  • the strength of the recommendations.
  • Preference will be given to those academically qualified applicants who also demonstrate the St. Anthony values of “excellence through teamwork and mutual respect” as well as “compassion and respect for all persons.”

Selection of the recipients will be determined by the Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation from information provided by the applicant, the school, and those who write letters of recommendation. Scholarship awards will be sent to the award recipient’s college in August.

Eligible students may apply for both this scholarship and the SAMC Norbert Siegfried Scholarship for Sons & Daughters of Employees but may only be awarded one scholarship. *

Each applicant will be notified by mail of his or her status in the competition by early June. Scholarship recipients will be expected to attend a reception in their honor.
