Two different scholarship programs for Lutherans are again being offered through Lutheran Brotherhood this year.
Lutheran Brotherhood members are eligible to apply for the organization's Member Scholarships. Award amounts for these competitive, merit-based scholarships are determined by the type of institution the student chooses to attend.
Recipients attending private Lutheran colleges are eligible for $2,000 per year, those attending private non-Lutheran colleges are eligible for $1,000 per year, and those attending public institutions and military academies are eligible for $500 per year.
Applications for Member Scholarships should be sent to Lutheran Brotherhood's home office and must be postmarked by Jan. 15.
Available to Lutheran students attending Lutheran colleges, universities and Bible schools, Lutheran College Scholarships are awarded in the amounts of $800 for non-Lutheran Brotherhood members and $1,500 for members.
The selection process is conducted by the Lutheran college(s) to which the student applies. Contact the colleges' financial aid offices for applications and deadline information.
To request a Member Scholarship application, contact James Torfin, a Lutheran Brotherhood district representative serving the Brainerd area, at 828-4549, or call Lutheran Brotherhood at 1-800-328-7168.
