Vote for St. Louis University to Receive the Christian Schools Standing With You Scholarship

Caroline Wharton - 01 Apr 2022

In December, 2021, Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement released its Christian Schools Project, investigating all 784 Christian schools across the country to identify any ties these Christian institutions have to the nation’s largest abortion vendor, Planned Parenthood.

Another goal of the Christian Schools Project was to encourage and identify schools which also support pregnant and parenting students on campus. SFLA is proud to introduce the Christian Schools Standing with You Scholarship Competition where we pick three Christian schools that are doing outstanding work for women on campus.  

It’s time to highlight the amazing pro-life efforts of students who attend Christian colleges and universities across America who are setting the standard for great Christian schools. These groups have a passion for helping pregnant and parenting students on their Christian campus, and SFLA wants to award them for their efforts—with your help! By evaluating each school’s friendliness and support for parenting students on campus, we have narrowed it down to our top ten school groups, and now it’s up to you to help us choose the winner. 

St. Louis University pro-life students

Check out one of the schools that made it to the top ten below: Saint Louis University in Missouri  

Saint Louis University is one of ten student groups competing to be in the top three of all Christian Schools that will earn a scholarship for pregnant and parenting students on campus and an award for their group activities for the upcoming year. 

Saint Louis University, a Catholic institution, was given an A-grade during the Christian Schools Project for not promoting Planned Parenthood to their students. The campus’s Students for Life of America group has been active since 2015.  Over the years, their group has helped further the pro-life movement in many different ways.  

Here are some accomplishments of the Saint Louis University group: 

  • They started a scholarship program on campus for pregnant and parenting students.  
  • Their group has helped advertise different resources and pregnancy help centers on campus.  
  • They have approximately 200 members on the rolls and about 50 consistent members.  
  • The group responded to the pandemic by hosting virtual meetings and presentations in order to keep pro-life momentum moving forward.  
  • Next year, they plan to make their efforts even more focused on promoting resources for pregnant and parenting students by hosting more diaper drives and having more donation opportunities while tabling.  
  • Some of the events this group has held included hosting the Cemetery of the Innocents display, having a Cupcakes for Life fundraiser, monthly visits to the local Planned Parenthood to pray the rosary, monthly volunteering at the local pregnancy help center, and biweekly group meetings. They fundraised more than $500 for their group and donated more than $100 worth of diapers to their local pregnancy resource center.  

You can vote for this school to receive a $1,500 scholarship for a pregnant or parenting student on their campus and up to $500 to help their group activities for the upcoming year. Click HERE to vote for Saint Louis University (MO)!  

And that’s not all, either—each of these three groups will also get to send two representatives to the National Leaders Collective. This is SFLA’s weekend of pro-life activism training for student leaders within our movement; at the National Leaders Collective, these two representatives will receive their award.
