Join UNCF St. Louis in celebrating our second annual Evening of Stars – Concert Gala, benefitting deserving students seeking higher education opportunities.
This music-filled evening will feature performances by jazz vocalist Denise Thimes; the North County Big Band; and Point of Jazz Ensemble, featuring students from Riverview Gardens High School under the direction of Harvey Lockhardt, plus a special concert performance by Chante Moore.
UNCF awards well over 10,000 scholarships, fellowships, and internships under 400 programs. As UNCF receives no federal or state funds, these programs are supported by contributions from corporations, foundations, families and individuals.
UNCF has been awarding college scholarships for more than 73 years. Never have they been more important—or more expensive. But as college has increased in importance and cost, federal support for college students from low-and moderate-income families has been constricting. Forty years ago, a needy student could use the Pell Grant to cover more than 75 percent of the costs of attending a public four-year college or university. Today it barely covers 30 percent.
