Scholarship

The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Rocky Mountain District has established scholarships for those going into full time professional church work for the LCMS. We want to encourage students to pursue full time church work. We need qualified professionals in our churches and schools. We spread that Good News by supporting those who do enter full time church service. Gifts to the scholarship Endowment Fund are gratefully accepted in any amount.

ENDOWMENT FUND

The LWML RMD Scholarship Endowment Fund has been established to generate funds to support those pursuing full time church work. This money goes into an account that will be drawn upon to pay for the scholarships given.

Anyone can make a contribution to the Endowment Fund. Gifts may be made “in memory” of someone, “in honor” of someone, or “to the Glory of God.” Any occasion can be remembered by a special gift. Be sure to include a note to the District Treasurer explaining whom you are honoring.

Make checks payable to: LWML RMD Scholarship Endowment Fund and remit to the LWML RMD Treasurer.
