Student scholarships were awarded to 139 applicants

Saint Luke’s College awarded $150,000 in student scholarships for the spring 2014 semester. The generosity of alumni and friends has resulted in 139 student recipients.

“That’s the good news,” said Jennifer Wright Financial Aid Administer for the College. “The bad news is we had 171 applicants—many more applicants than in past years and so we weren’t able to provide an award for all applicants.”

Ten students receive scholarships from Baptist Trinity Lutheran Legacy Foundation

The Baptist Trinity Lutheran Legacy Foundation awards several scholarships each year. Of the 21 scholarships awarded, 10 Saint Luke’s College students were recipients.
