Request for Information on Scholarships for MID’s
The Wisconsin Conference is seeking to increase our emotional, spiritual and financial support of our Members in Discernment. The Wisconsin Members in Discernment Cohort (a committee of members from our four associations) would like to inform MID’s of churches who have scholarship money available to those who are following a path to authorized ministry.
When I attended Seminary, a church in the Association where I held my In-Care (MID) status, gave me a scholarship for three years. There was also an individual in the Conference, a retired pastor who had an endowed scholarship which I received. Their gifts made a difference in my being able to complete my theological education. Your church and members can also make a difference to our Members in Discernment today. Helping our MIDs fund their education is essential to supporting the development of future leaders.
Does your church have a scholarship available to your Association or Conference members who are discerning their call to authorized ministry? Are there expectations that must be met in order to receive a scholarship or forgivable loan?
Thank you for helping us put together a list of available financial support.
Please email Pastor Jacoba Koppert at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your information about scholarships or loans of which you are aware or your questions. Thank you for your assistance.
