The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Fund for Leaders has been offering scholarships for students at ELCA seminaries who are pursuing rostered ministry in the ELCA since 2000. We seek people who are passionate about Jesus Christ, spiritually grounded, ecumenically oriented and committed to growing their leadership capacity in an increasingly complex world.
Applicants must demonstrate outstanding leadership potential and be exceptionally gifted in ministry, innovation, creativity and other qualities that will make them successful leaders for a changing church. All applicants must plan to be enrolled at an ELCA seminary during the coming academic year and must be pursuing rostered ministry in the ELCA. There are four scholarships offered; individual scholarship criteria varies. Scholarship due dates vary. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
