4MyCash St. Louis Hard Money Scholarship

The 4MyCash St. Louis Hard Money Scholarship was created to help students interested in higher education reach their goal of attending college or university. Each year students who have lived in St. Louis, MO, at some point in their lives, will have the chance to provide a short essay. Applicants are asked to explain how their experience living in St. Louis has shaped them as individuals. St. Louis is a dynamic and historic city faced with many challenges, but it is also one of opportunity and growth. We encourage applicants to consider some of those challenges and opportunities in their essay. A committee will select a winner by the end of November. One winner will be selected and receive $1000 towards higher education.
