Specialized Pastoral Ministry Scholarships

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Specialized Pastoral Ministry awards chaplaincy, pastoral counseling and clinical education scholarships.

The Specialized Pastoral Ministries scholarship was started in 1992 with funds donated by persons serving in ministries of chaplaincy, pastoral counseling and clinical education, and by others supportive of these ministries.

In 2003, Lutheran Chaplaincy Auxiliary of St. Paul, Minn., contributed its assets to an endowment that is now divided equally between the ELCA and LCMS. This contribution was a way of continuing its 80-year support of chaplaincy ministry.
