Student Financial Aid

The CNH District offers financial aid to students pursuing careers in full-time church work at schools in the Concordia University System or at LCMS seminaries. First time applicants for student aid from the CNH District must fill out and return the initial CNH District application forms. In addition to this you will also fill out the Synodical form which you can access here.

Returning applicants need only process the Synodical form.


Additionally, if you are a pastor, teacher, or other professional church worker who is paying off federal student loans, you may benefit from two debt-reduction programs now offered by the U.S. Department of Education. Information on these programs is available on the LCMS website.


Deadline: July 1


Please contact the CNH District Financial Aid Contact person, Patrice Appold, if you have any questions.
