About the Program

Luthercare’s Nursing Scholarship Program offers scholarship opportunities for both local high school students and Luthercare team members. The program began in 2009 by offering scholarships to team members who were furthering their education and professional development. In 2020, with COVID-19 greatly impacting the nursing field, our scholarship program was extended for the first time to local high school students. Since then, Luthercare has distributed $72,000 in scholarships to 62 high school students for nursing education. 

The program reflects our organization’s continuing commitment to quality care and the education of healthcare professionals, and it would not be possible without the generous donors who support Luthercare’s Nursing Scholarship Fund.
