The Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (WELCA) have a $500 scholarship available for any member-student of Zion Lutheran Church that will be attending a Lutheran College or University. There will be a maximum of 4 scholarships available. This scholarship is often equally matched by the college thus increasing the value to $1000. Scholarships are awarded to second semester college freshman to be used for tuition or books.
