The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has invited the LCANZ to participate in its annual International Leaders Program.
Under the program, the ELCA will provide a scholarship for a person who commits to being placed in a leadership role at the conclusion of their study or is already in a leadership position in the LCANZ. The scholarships support study in a variety of academic fields, however, this year's priority areas include justice work, environment, health, agriculture and food security, sustainable livelihoods, refugee services, water resources, advocacy and disaster response preparedness.
Applications close 15 October 2022.
LCA Study Grants
Study grants are available to members of the LCA for study that will better equip them for service within the church.
Usually up to $5000 for any one grant, the funding is to be used to cover costs associated with a study program or training project. Most grants are awarded to support courses no longer than one year full-time in duration.
Applicants should check the final enrolment date for their chosen course and should submit an application for an LCA Study Grant earlier than the closing date if required.
