Our Match Scholarship is part of our innovative, comprehensive effort to reduce student financial debt and support financial wellness in seminary and beyond.

At Lancaster Seminary, we know that our graduates change the world as they bring hope and healing to God’s people. Our Match Scholarship program invites you to be part of that change.

The Damage of Debt

The burden of crushing student debt causes many to drop out of ministry or never apply or finish seminary.

The Solution

Lancaster Seminary’s unique program offers students financial education, the support of money mentors, training in fundraising skills, and the opportunity to receive up to $5,000 to match funds they raise for their seminary tuition.

Here’s Where You Can Help

When you give a gift to support a student’s education, you help them qualify to receive matching funds from Lancaster Seminary. In some cases, your gift can be doubled up to $5,000.

In addition to raising funds for their education, our students must meet certain milestones to qualify for matching funds: they must attend workshops that focus on the mindset needed to ask for money for God’s work, they must meet regularly with their money mentor and complete classes in finance and budgeting.

How Does the Program Work?

Over the years, students have raised far more than $5,000 per year, allowing them to leave seminary with minimal or no student loan debt! And they take with them critical financial skills useful in their work and their life. Will you accept this invitation to help sponsor a seminarian’s education needed for a career of service “so that all God’s creation may flourish?”
