We offer scholarships in four categories:
Scholarships for Lutheran laywomen
Opportunity Scholarships for Lutheran Laywomen provide assistance to Lutheran women studying for a career other than ordained ministry.
Scholarships for administrative leadership
The Arne Administrative Scholarship provides assistance to women interested in reaching the top of their field as administrators. The additional education may be pursued through full-time school attendance, night courses, or summer sessions.
