The Love of Christ Scholarship (Scholarship Fund) is to provide financial assistance to attend district LWML events. Established in 1998 to assist women in South Wisconsin District who wish to attend district retreats and conventions. Limited number of scholarships are available for each event (ten $100 scholarships per retreat and thirty $100 scholarships for District Convention, every other year). Scholarships are used toward registration first and various other expense for the event. Scholarships are considered on an individual basis and a new application must be submitted for each event. Confidentiality of all applicants, including those awarded scholarships, is a high priority. Deadlines for each event will be announced on the website and only applications received by the deadline will be considered.
These grants are funded by the individual members of the LWML-South Wisconsin District through a percentage of Fall Retreat and Winter Getaway offerings, special gifts and interest on our funds. To be eligible, a woman must be a resident of South Wisconsin District enrolled in one of our synodical institutions preparing for full time church work in a called position. Please join us in praying for these young ladies and all of our young people preparing for a life of service in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. To God be the Glory! Serving gladly, Scholarship Committee and Sarah Barkley, chair.
