Committing to the next generation of leaders

Scholarships have the power to change the lives of our students, the ways they can learn, and the many places they will one day serve. LSTC is committed to investing in the next generation of problem solvers, those who will lead the church of future, which starts now. Building a diverse student body that represents that future is our responsibility – for our students, for the Church, and for our world.

Visionary Scholarship Fund

LSTC’s core institutional scholarship program, the Visionary Scholarship Fund puts your dollars to use immediately to provide support for tuition and related academic expenses.

Emerging Leaders Fund

LSTC is proud to announce a new Emerging Leaders Fund, which will provide financial support to students of color and students from historically underrepresented communities. This Fund aims to remove obstacles to full and equitable access to and participation in the seminary experience.

Global Leaders Fund

LSTC has a long history of welcoming accomplished students from across the globe who typically arrive having practiced various ministries in their country of origin. They also face unique challenges that we must recognize and support to continue to attract and retain promising scholars. To do this well, we need to significantly enhance our ability to extend assistance for housing, living expenses, healthcare and emergency situations. Ensuring that our international students are secure in these basic needs, beyond tuition, allows them to focus on their studies and their own spiritual growth.  Your support creates an environment where these students can thrive and therefore offer their ministry to a global audience as visionary leaders.

Scholarship Stories

Because of gifts like yours, LSTC students become leaders in faith and the world. Below, meet three students who are transforming their communities and making a difference.

There are countless more students who can make differences in their communities just as crucial to the success of our ever-changing world. You can be the one that makes their potential a reality.
