My Scholarship Central

My Scholarship Central is a free scholarship search and application website for Missouri students, and students who live in the Illinois counties that are part of Metropolitan St. Louis. Students can learn about and apply to more than 120 scholarship and interest free loan programs.

In 2011, My Scholarship Central was developed by St. Louis Graduates (then the College Access Pipeline Project) in partnership with the St. Louis Community Foundation, the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis, and Wells Fargo. The vision was a community-wide effort to increase students’ access to private college funding resources. My Scholarship Central started as a regional St. Louis resource but expanded to serve the entire state of Missouri when the Missouri Scholarship & Loan Foundation joined the site in 2016.

In 2020, the My Scholarship Central Search Tool launched to connect students across the state of Missouri to scholarship providers in their area. Nine community foundations and scholarship providers came together to create a central place where students can easily find local scholarships.

Since 2011, more than $50 million in scholarships and interest free loans have been awarded to students through My Scholarship Central. There are over 9,000 student users annually and 50 organizations that provider scholarships use the site each year to collect applications.
