A Century of Service. Giving for Good.

The Quest Scholarship Fund



Quest Scholarship Fund donors believe that learning, especially intercultural learning, is a basis for the growth of the individual and the betterment of schools, the local community, and the worldwide community. Opportunities for intercultural learning should be accessible to all. The Quest Scholarship Fund aims to help high-achieving students from low-income families experience a life-changing opportunity to study abroad. The AFS-USA Faces of America study abroad program offers students a scholarship that will cover 50% of program tuition when the other 50% is matched by local community-based organizations or funds. Until now, the St. Louis region has not participated in this valuable opportunity for our youth. The Quest Scholarship Fund was created to change this.

The Quest Scholarship Fund, established as a component of the St. Louis Community Foundation, will allow like-minded donors to come together to provide money for scholarships.  The fund is seeking help to raise $50,000 each year to provide ten (10) or more scholarships to deserving young people. For more information about applying for this scholarship, contact Tameka Herrion, Scholarship Manager at scholarships@stlgives.org or (314) 880-4960 or Debra Veatch, Quest Scholarship Co-founder at dveatch@charter.net or (314) 578-1530.
