The LWML South Wisconsin District has been blessed to be able to award scholarships each year since 1991 to women from South Wisconsin District who are preparing for church work in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. An endowment was established to assist women with their undergraduate education. The number and amount of scholarships varies from year to year depending on the funds available that year. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2017-2018 school year.
Who may apply? Active female members of congregations of the South Wisconsin District of the LCMS who are residents of the SWD prior to college and are preparing for “full-time service in the LCMS” are encouraged to apply. An applicant must be enrolled as an undergraduate at one of the educational institutions of the Synod for the 2017-2018 school year. (Full-time service in the church is defined as any position available through the Board of Assignments of the Synod.)
How to apply? Complete the LWML application forms and return them to the LWML SWD Scholarship Committee. All applications and references must be postmarked no later than April 30, 2017. Application instructions and forms are available online at the LWML SWD website: www.lwml-swd.org.
If you know of a young woman who qualifies for this exciting opportunity, please share this information with her and encourage her to apply.
