The St. Louis Community College Foundation has received a $25,000 contribution from the Ameren Corporation Charitable Trust for the college’s Ameren Scholarship program.

Funds from this scholarship help cover the tuition, books and fees of students in engineering technology programs at STLCC’s Florissant Valley campus.

“Businesses rely on St. Louis Community College for training the future work force, and many of those businesses – like Ameren, are finding ways to partner with the college to further guarantee the strength and growth of successful programs for STLCC students,” said Jeff Pittman, Ph.D., SLTCC chancellor.  “We thank Ameren for investing in the future of our students, which in turn represents an investment in the future of the local and regional economy.”

Since 2009, more than $150,500 has been awarded through this scholarship fund. Forty students have completed degrees.
Students interested in pursuing an associate degree in mechanical engineering technology, electrical/electronic engineering technology or engineering science at STLCC-Florissant Valley are eligible to apply each semester for these scholarships.
Once awarded, the scholarship is renewable each semester, up to four semesters, provided that students continue to meet the established criteria.
