CityStudioSTL Student Awards are open to full-time undergraduate or graduate students who propose to continue a community collaborative project from a curricular or cocurricular experience. Awards will support students who wish to either complete a project begun in a course, or expand the project’s original scope; priority is given to initiatives that are already underway.

Proposed projects must involve an individual, organization, or partner in the St. Louis community. A range of projects will be supported, including those that engage art, design, or architecture in addressing issues such as health and wellness, diversity and inclusion, urban planning, creative placemaking, and sustainability. Students are encouraged to collaborate with their existing partner as they develop their plans, in order to ensure the partner’s needs are met.

Awards will be up to $500 per student or group of students, with a rolling deadline. In some circumstances, additional funding may be provided to help support projects based on application budgets.
