We are so proud of our Higher Education and COVID/Emergency Scholarship recipients. You can meet several of the 61 winners awarded last month on the Synod’s youtube channel by clicking here.  You can find a list of all of the winners here.

What a time to be in a higher learning program! Even with a pandemic in the mix these students are all still going strong! The worry, the shutdowns, the isolation, and some going months in between seeing family is only added to their workload.

In the book of Romans Paul writes Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may discern the will of God. Romans 12:2. These scholarship winners have overcome a time in history where it would be easy just to throw in the towel. They students have made a conscious decision to continue their transformations through education. We know that God goes with them on their journeys.

To our dedicated students: We love you, and are praying for you. Congratulations on winning these scholarships, you have truly earned it!

Don’t forget that students can apply for COVID/Emergency scholarships of up to $500 until December 4, 2020.  Look for more information here.

Our Grants and Scholarship team continues to work tirelessly in an effort to support your students and missions. We have received 26 applications for the New Covenant and Racial Ethnic grants. We will announce the winners of these grants on or before December 1, 2020.

These scholarships and grants are funded in part by per capita donations from the almost 700 congregations of the Synod of the Covenant.
