LCMS Eastern District




The Eastern District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod offers educational grants-in-aid to college students. Awards will be issued based on financial need, not scholastic achievement or merit; however, a student is expected to maintain a grade point average of at least a "C". While awards are normally granted for a full academic year, applications for college quarters or semesters may be considered on an individual basis.


Minimum eligibility requires that a student:

  • Be a member of an LCMS Eastern District congregation
  • Be enrolled as full-time student in a college or seminary program and, upon graduation, be prepared to serve in a full-time church profession (Pastor, Teacher, Director of Christian Education, Director of Evangelism, Deaconess, Parish Assistant, Lay Minister).
  • Apply for aid on a year-by-year basis for a single, specific academic year
