The climate for educating future leaders in this church has changed — financing seminary education is primarily the responsibility of each individual student. The ELCA Fund for Leaders is a seminary scholarship program that seeks to support and lift up gifted students who are called to leadership in this church. Together with individuals, congregations, and synods, the fund was able to support 241students studying at one of the eight ELCA seminaries during the 2014-2015 school years, distributing over $1.45 million. By relieving these exciting students of the challenges of debt, we are ensuring a bright future with energetic and faithful leaders in the ELCA. A specialized scholarship was established to further assist those seminarians interested in pursuing a Federal Chaplaincy ministry career path.
