LCMS Scholarship

LCMS Scholarship 2016-2017 Recipients

Each year, our partner church, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, offers tuition scholarships for students who demonstrate financial need and academic achievement. This scholarship is offered thanks to the generosity of our LCMS brothers and sisters in Christ, who desire to enable the training of men for the pastoral ministry in the India Evangelical Lutheran Church.
