A priority of the Southeastern District is to raise up LCMS professional church workers. To financially assist those who have pledged their service to become rostered LCMS workers, the District has established a Student Aid Grant program that is administered by the Student Aid Task Force comprised of church workers and laity of the Southeastern District. The program is funded through the allocation of budgeted funds of the Southeastern District as well as donations from generous individuals, congregations, and service organizations.
Regulations and procedures regarding the SED Student Aid Program can be found in OM 360. An application for assistance is required for each year of study, using the Southeastern District Student Application form. Other forms will not be accepted. All applicants are required to have an endorsement from their home pastor, or congregational president if there is a vacancy or the student’s father is pastor. Awards are for one year only and do not imply a commitment from one year to the next. The Student Aid Task Force will review the applications in June. Applicants and the respective financial aid office will be advised by mid July of grants awarded. Awards are disbursed directly to the school listed on the application in two installments, first in August and then in late December. Questions regarding the grant process can be directed to the District Business Manager, David Kennedy, at 703-971-9371 (toll free 800-637-5723), Ext. 213 or email@example.com
To ensure consideration, the application and all required documentation must be received by the District office by May 31.
