  8. Departmental Scholarships

    Many annual and endowed scholarships and awards have been funded by friends and alumni of Luther College. These scholarships often have specific criteria for potential recipients involving financial need, academic program of study, etc. The Luther Financial Aid Office works closely with each academic department to award these scholarships to deserving candidates.

    Awards are presented in the spring, for use the following academic year. Because selection is made by faculty, in cooperation with the Financial Aid Office, there is no need to apply. If you have questions, please see your department head.
