If you are a Lutheran high school senior, college student or seminarian, you are eligible to apply for this service scholarship, which helps cover the costs of schooling at either a Lutheran college or a state college or university. Seminarians who apply for this scholarship must be a first- or second-year student to qualify.

Overview of Scholarship

To prepare for applying for this scholarship, you must be enrolled in classes that will enable you to enter a career working with people who suffer from developmental and intellectual disabilities. Every year, the Bethesda Lutheran communities award a total of $10,000 to selected students. To choose which students will receive the scholarships, Bethesda Religious Life staff members from Lutheran churches all across the country meet as a committee to go through every application, then make the final choices.

To be considered, you have to show proof of the service hours you have spent working with people who suffer from developmental and intellectual disabilities. You must also present proof of your academic history, as well as letters of recommendation.
