Financing Your Education

LSTC joyfully offers an abundance of scholarship opportunities. We know that money can be stressful and make following your call to seminary a challenge, but through generous donations from individuals, churches, synods, and multiple foundations, LSTC is able to provide scholarships at a higher level than ever before.

Our Visionary Leaders and Public Church Fellowships are just two of the prestigious awards offered to students who demonstrate excellent scholarship and service to church and community.

Scholarships are available for students pursuing a call to the ELCA’s roster of Word and Service and help fund field work opportunities and other costs associated with fulfilling degree requirements. LSTC also subsidizes housing costs, making it affordable for you to live in the sought-after Hyde Park neighborhood, even if you have a family (or a pet).


We encourage you to call 773-256-0726 if you have any questions about the numerous options available to you. Below you'll find an illustrative overview of various funding sources:
