“These scholarships are such a blessing, coming toward the end of the year when students are settling their final accounts,” said Concordia Seminary Director of Financial Aid Laura Hemmer. “These students were chosen because of their exemplary academic standing or their commitment to a specific area of ministry. We are so proud of these students and their accomplishments, and we are grateful to our generous donors who have made these scholarships available.”

Concordia Seminary is blessed by its donors, many of whom who invest their gifts in permanent funds called endowments. The Seminary currently has more than 500 endowments — many named in honor of esteemed pastors, faculty or family members — that provide financial assistance for student tuition and aid.

The Seminary also is blessed with a cumulative student aid endowment. Anyone may make a gift of any size to the cumulative fund. Collectively, these funds provide the resources for the Seminary to waive a large portion of student tuition expense.
