The purpose of financial aid is to assist students’ preparation for pastoral ministry or lay leadership in the church, and to respond to special financial circumstances. The seminary’s financial aid consists of any or all of the following: grants, recommendations for government loans, recommendations for part-time employment (on or off campus). Further assistance may be available from your home congregation, your District Office, and your relatives.
Financial aid is intended to supplement, not replace, the student’s own resources, and will be administered in such a way as to affirm the financial responsibility and integrity of both the student at the seminary.
Funds for internal financial aid derive from various sources: direct gifts from congregations, groups and individuals; offerings from Opening Service and Reformation Service; and interest from endowment funds.
Normally, financial aid will be offered only to full-time students preparing for pastoral ministry in Lutheran Church-Canada, who are not on academic probation.
