Scholarships & Sponsorships

We participate in the education and training of students globally -- those from other countries studying here at Luther Seminary, others studying in Indonesia, and one of our own young adults who has chosen to serve globally for a one-year commitment.

Luther Seminary Global Student Scholarships

Good Shepherd provides scholarship funds for international students at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota. In turn, we welcome international students into our congregation’s life. For more information, contact Karen Walhof. Learn more about Luther Seminary.

Missionary Sponsorship

Through ELCA Global Mission, Good Shepherd contributes to the sponsorship of Professor Rosanne Swanson, a missionary serving with the church in Indonesia, teaching in the seminary there. For more information, contact Karen Walhof. Read Rosanne’s latest letter.

Young Adults in Global Mission


Good Shepherd has committed to a total scholarship for any student who qualifies to become a Young Adult in Global Mission and commits to a one-year global service opportunity through the ELCA. This year one of our members, Dave Matyi, is serving at Nuestro Salvador in Montevideo, Uruguay. Follow Dave's blog.
