Helping to guide you through paying for seminary

Paying for seminary is not easy. All seminarians make sacrifices to complete their education. Perhaps you have debt from a recent undergraduate program, or perhaps you have left a well-paying job to become a student. Whatever the case may be, we at the NALS aim to come alongside you in your desire to say “yes” to the call of God on your life. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the NALS offers several opportunities for financial assistance to those students in candidacy with the North American Lutheran Church who demonstrate financial need.
