The Skimiti Scholarship program will award renewable scholarships up to $2,000 annually to students graduating, or who have previously graduated, from Maplewood Richmond Heights School District and resided at Joe’s Place. The recipient will demonstrate unmet financial need at the two or four year college, technical/trade school or approved certificate program they attend. Recipients may be considered for renewal for up to three additional years of undergraduate studies if a renewal application is submitted in a timely manner and academic and financial eligibility criteria continue to be met.
To be eligible, the applicant must
- be a current or past resident of Joe’s Place in Maplewood Richmond Heights.
- be graduating or a past graduate of Maplewood Richmond Heights High School.
- plan to enroll part time or full time in an accredited, nonprofit post-secondary two or four year college or university, technical/trade school or approved certificate program in the United States of America.
- demonstrate unmet financial need.
Selection will be based on the student’s academic record, the quality of the essay and letter(s) of recommendation, 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."
Application status will be changed from submitted to either offered or denied in June. Applicants can view their status by logging in to their Scholarship Central account. Award checks will be mailed in early August to the college the scholarship recipient will attend. Information about renewal applications will come from the St. Louis Community Foundation.
Recipients may reapply for award consideration for a maximum of four years of undergraduate funding provided they continue to make satisfactory progress toward a degree, continue to meet the eligibility criteria, and complete the renewal application on time.
