Howell Foundation

The Howell Foundation was established in 1999 through the encouragement and generosity of then Governor Mel Carnahan. The Foundation is a not-for-profit, wholly volunteer organization, dedicated to helping deserving graduates of the Francis Howell School District high schools enter higher education. Primarily, the Foundation raises money to fund three distinct functions: to provide continuing education scholarships for graduates of the four Francis Howell School District high schools; provide teacher, school or project grants related as closely as possible to student achievement and/or welfare; and articulate, in constructive forms, an understanding and appreciation of the unique history of our region and community.

Scholarship winners were selected on the basis of academic and good citizenship demonstrated over the course of the students’ high school career. Recipients are selected without regard to race, gender, religion, or national origin. The funds from the scholarship are used to aid in paying the cost of tuition or books.
