Lutheran students seeking study in the United States should apply via standard application forms that are obtained from the national church office in your home country. The seminary works together with the Global Mission unit of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the companion national churches to determine priorities of study and financial aid. The completed application forms should be sent by October 15, prior to the year the financial assistance will be needed. Please return those application forms to:

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Attn: Ms. Tammy Jackson
8765 West Higgins Road
Chicago, Illinois 60631

If you are not Lutheran, please first apply for further study through the scholarship office of your church. An applicant is required to be endorsed by his or her home church or be on the priority list for study in the United States of America. If the church has endorsed and assigned a priority, they can help you apply for scholarships. Certification of any personal funds you have available for study is also required.
