The LEF Business and Community Partnership Committee has compiled a list of outreach and educational programs offered by companies and academic institutions that provide extraordinary opportunities for students.  These programs range in various learning and training opportunities in all areas and can be sorted by grade level and career cluster.

Student Opportunities - For a collection of fantastic summer and ongoing opportunities for students, see our new database of programs available to the community. Notable examples are:

  • HERlead Fellowship: a fellowship to provide leadership training to young women, empowering them to become the next generation of global trailblazers.

  • Academy of Science STL: hands-on workshops in many areas of interest, including medicine, computers, robotics, ecology and zoology.

  • Acappellooza Summer: an a cappella music summer camp held at UMSL for students in grades 9-12. For four days students will be immersed in singing led by some of the world’s most prominent names in a cappella music, including members of the internationally renowned Ambassadors of Harmony and Dr. Jim Henry, Head of Choral Studies at UMSL.

  • Registered Youth Apprenticeship: apprenticeships which allow students the opportunity to earn a paycheck while participating in a structured combination of school-based and work-based learning. The program addresses the dual role of preparing students for a rewarding and lucrative career while also providing Missouri with a highly skilled, technologically competitive workforce.

Our database will continue to expand as we add information, so please check back regularly. If you know of a great program or scholarship not listed, please let us know at
