The Michigan District, LCMS Student Aid program is designed to provide financial assistance in the form of scholarships to
- members of Michigan District LCMS congregations,
- preparing for and intending to enter full-time church work (as defined as any position available through the Board of Assignments of the Synod),
- at one of the seminaries of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod or one of the colleges or universities of the Concordia University System.
Annual distributions are currently set based on the available funds for the year and the number of eligible students. A three tier system will be used. Students attending one of the two seminaries will receive aid at the highest rate, students attending Concordia University Ann Arbor and Concordia University Wisconsin will receive aid at the middle rate, and students attending one of the other eight CUS schools will receive aid at the base rate. The amount granted at each level will be determined by how many students are approved and how much money is budgeted.
The deadline for application is June 1 of each year. The Michigan District now uses a two page application form. The first page is the common LCMS District Financial Aid Application and the second page is a Pastoral Verification Form both of which are below. The LCMS Financial Aid Application should be submitted to the respective financial aid office of the seminary, college, or university in ample time for the institution to complete the application and forward it to the Michigan District by the June 1 deadline. The Pastoral Verification Form should be submitted to the District Office by the June 1 deadline as well. Please note the program guidelines for other requirements.
