The Lutheran Lay Fellowship of the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area
(LLF) is pleased to announce the availability of two scholarship awards for
One of the five objectives of the LLF is "to initiate and support worthy
projects of a religious, charitable, and educational nature." The promotion and
encouragement of the pursuit of degree oriented education among Lutheran
students is the purpose of the scholarship program.
This program, which is an outgrowth of the Bly Scholarship Program and
the Scherzer Scholarship Program (both of which were administered by LLFs
Scholarship Committee under the direction of its Board of Directors), supports
this objective. Collectively, the intention of the two original programs was to
direct awards to promising students entering careers which would enable them to
help those in need of spiritual development, and/or affordable shelter and
medical attention both at home and abroad. This intention is continued in this
program focusing on committed applicants going into their third or fourth
year of undergraduate study. For 2017, we are offering an additional
scholarship to a Lutheran Seminary student..
