The mission of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League is to assist each woman of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.

Scholarships - see below for current recipients and application forms

When members of the LWML Washington-Alaska District desired to support individuals preparing to serve the Lord in church careers, they established a Scholarship Fund supported by donations. Contributions to this fund may be made by:

    •  Individuals

     •  Local LCMS Churches

     •  Local LWML Groups

     •  Scholarship Memorial Cards

A mission grant, if voted in by the members of the LWML Washington-Alaska District at a convention in even-numbered years, was given to specific seminary students. Now, that same mission grant, if voted in, goes into the Scholarship Fund so one pool of money will fund students wanting to go into full-time church work.

Today you can give directly to the Scholarship Fund and have your donation used only for scholarships, or you can give to Mites and a portion of that gift will provide scholarships for future pastors, teachers, deaconesses, and others planning to dedicate their life to work within the church.

Scholarships are awarded to individuals who have a home congregation in the district, plan to become full time church workers, are enrolled in a synodical seminary or university, and have demonstrated a financial need. Currently, the award is no more than $2000 a year for post-graduate students and $1000 for undergraduates, which is sent directly to the financial office of the seminary or university and applied to tuition.

For more information contact the Scholarship Committee Chairman Judith Ikerd via lwml.wa.ak.webmaster@gmail.com.
