Lutheran Scholarships

If you think Lutheran scholarships only exist for study in Minnesotans, think again. The Lutheran Church is eager to dish out scholarship money like a second helping of hotdish at the church potluck. 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 help its members attend college, avoid student loans, and achieve their educational goals. The Lutheran faith strongly believes in community service providing financial aid to those in need. The Lutheran Church, like many other scholarship providers, awards scholarships to students they think will grow to become productive members of society and the church.

University to Give New Students Free Laptops for Filing the FAFSA

April 6, 2021

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus made laptops a necessity for college students. Where before students without personal computers or laptops could use on-campus computers and provided software to meet the technological needs of their courses, the shift last spring to online classes necessitated that students have a stable internet connection and a compatible device.
