"Progress 64 West plays a key role in determining what is needed to support, grow and foster community vitality.  It's what every community needs for a healthy economy" 
                                                                 Debbie Shaw-Franke, President, Progress 64 West

The Progress 64 Entrepreneurial Scholarship was established by Progress 64 West, a partnership of citizens, businesses, and civic leaders. The Scholarship aims to support, encourage, and foster young entrepreneurs who go to school or live in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, or St. Charles County.  Scholarships are for one year and typically range between $1,000 – $5,000.

Each committee is led and facilitated by Senior P64 Members. These committees direct the programming of the monthly membership meetings, and actively engage with community partners to advance key initiatives.


From skilled trades such as automotive technology, construction, plumbing, or electrical contracting to fields as diverse as agriculture and architecture, Progress 64 West advocates for the needed labor force for tomorrows community vitality. 


Partners in Education (PIE) facilitators collaborate with volunteers willing to share their expertise or special talents with students.  This community connection enhances the educational curriculum, making learning more meaningful and relevant for students.
