Scholarship Application

Complete Applications are due by September 1, 2024

Endorsement letter from Pastoral Leader or Clerk of Session

Friend in Christ: 


A student from your Chistian community is applying for an educational support scholarship offered by the Synod of the Covenant. The scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis depending on the student’s need, enrollment status, and demonstrated Christian leadership.


A letter from a ministry leader of the community where the student is an active participant in good standing is required to complete the scholarship application. 


Please write a letter on official letterhead (no longer than one page) about the above student addressing the following topics: 

  1. How long have you known the applicant? 

  2. Do you recommend the applicant for a scholarship from the Synod of the Covenant?

  3. Is the applicant an active participant in the ministry? 

  4. How has the student helped your ministry to thrive, and/or helped to address racial injustice, or engaged anti-poverty efforts (the three main goals of the Synod)?

  5. Do you have additional relevant comments you wish to share? 


Ministry leader or clerk of session must e-mail the letter on letterhead to the Synod’s email (below) before the student’s application can be considered.  This is the only form of endorsement accepted.  Your letter must be received by September 1, 2024, so that applications can be considered beginning 9/2/2024. Please use this same email for any questions or feedback as well. 


Questions can be addressed to Rev. Amy Duiker or Lisa Allgood at
