Lutheran Community Fund publicizes Immanuel scholarships

The Lutheran Community Foundation (LCF) recently announced the availability of scholarship awards from The Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church of North Minneapolis Scholarship Program. These scholarship opportunities are made possible through a permanently endowed, charitable fund held at LCF, established by the former Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregation of Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Founded in 1888, Immanuel maintained a strong commitment to education. A school affiliated with the church was founded in the same year to provide English language and religious instruction to immigrant families. The school remained a part of the church’s mission for nearly 100 years. At the time of its closing in November 2001, the congregation established this fund to benefit Lutheran students who are members of congregations within the Minnesota South District of the LCMS.

Candidates for the scholarship awards must also be in their third or fourth year of full-time study at an undergraduate college or university of the LCMS or enrolled in a full-time post-baccalaureate program. They must also be pursuing a career in professional ministry or lay ministry.

Complete eligibility requirements and applications for the scholarships are available by contacting the LCF at 1-800/365-4172. Applications may also be downloaded from LCF’s website at www.TheLCF.org/grants/scholarship_applications.

All applications and necessary documents must be postmarked no later than May 31, 2013, for consideration.
