Investing in High-Impact Learning

High-impact learning refers to teaching and learning practices that best engage and challenge students, increase retention, and contribute to cumulative learning.

Endowed Applied Learning Opportunities:
$25,000 minimum commitment

Supports applied learning and internship opportunities for students by providing funds to assist with transportation, meals, and housing. Since many applied learning opportunities are unpaid, investing in these experiences allows Luther students to consider calling and vocation in exploring their careers.

Endowed Study-Away Scholarships:
$50,000 minimum commitment

Developing a global perspective is key to a Luther education. More than two-thirds of Luther students participate in study-away programs, broadening their worldview and gaining firsthand experience with global issues and ideas. A study-away scholarship endowment provides a scholarship of approximately $2,500 annually to students based on preferences of the donor. Donors may define awards on the basis of financial need or merit, and may choose to give preference to students based on field of interest, major, location, etc.

Endowed Student Research Fellowships:
$100,000 minimum commitment

Supports scholarly activity and collaborative research opportunities for students by providing summer stipends and funding necessary for supplies. Investing in student research allows Luther to further enhance its commitment to supporting independent and collaborative student-faculty research opportunities as part of the undergraduate experience.
