Student Grant Program - United Way of Greater St. Louis

Student United Way of Greater St. Louis offers $10,000 in one-time grants – up to $1,000 each – to provide financial support for student-led community service projects within the greater St. Louis region. Student United Way volunteers identify the emerging regional issues that the grants address, and lead the grant allocations process.

Local college student applicants can apply for the grant in collaboration with service organizations including, but not limited to: student clubs, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and religious groups.
