New Partner Church Scholarship Program Announced
LM has announced new and expanded Partner Church Scholarship options for the 2018-19 school year.
LM will match any congregation’s scholarship contribution up to $2,000 per student, resulting in a potential total scholarship of $4,000 per student.
Under the current plan, LM grants $200 per student to students coming from congregations that donate at least $1,000 annually to LM. This option will continue.
Under the new plan, congregations may choose to contribute $500, $1,000, or $2,000 per student, which will be matched by the school to provide $1,000, $2,000 and $4,000 scholarships to those students. (Some families may also be eligible for financial aid.)
The school is in the process of making congregations aware of this new opportunity to support students. It will be important for school families, and for those considering LM, to make their congregations aware of their interest in the scholarship program. Friends of the school are also invited to raise awareness of this new opportunity by sharing it with others, supporting it through advocacy or being willing to contribute to such a fund.
This program will make a quality Christ-centered education affordable for more families and strengthen family-church-school connections.
