Lutheran Scholarships

If you think Lutheran scholarships only exist for study in Minnesota, think again. The Lutheran Church is eager to dish out scholarship money like it’s a second helping of hotdish at the church potluck. With its emphasis on cooperation and community, it’s not surprise the Lutheran church is committed to helping its members find money for college by providing both local scholarships and national awards. Lutheran scholarships exist to assist members of the faith in attending college and achieving their educational goals. The Lutheran faith believes strongly in providing service to the community and financial aid to those in need. Plus, organizations offering Lutheran scholarships, like many other scholarship providers, hope that by giving you scholarship awards now, they’re putting you in a position where you may be able to donate to their cause once you’re wealthy and successful. Just think—if you win a Lutheran scholarship, avoid student loans, and eventually graduate and get a good job, why wouldn’t you want to return the favor a few years down the road and help a student just like you pay for school? Well, lots of people funding Lutheran scholarships think that way—they might say it was the Christian thing to do.
