First Lutheran Church Scholarship Program

About the Program:

First Lutheran Scholarships and the Donna Johnson Memorial Scholarship are two separate scholarships within the First Lutheran Church Scholarship Program. Applicants are encouraged to apply to both, however an individual is only eligible to receive one scholarship.

  • First Lutheran Church Scholarships are one-time, non-renewable awards. The number and amount of individual scholarships will be determined by the amount of funds available each year.
  • The Donna Johnson Memorial Scholarship was initially created to focus on applicants who are first-generation college students and those students with financial need. Preference may be given to those criteria, but applicants are considered as a whole. It is a one-time, non-renewable award in the amount of $5,000.

We strongly encourage students to apply for both scholarships.

The scholarship program is open to all graduating high school seniors who are members of First Lutheran Church, Le Sueur and will be attending a two- or four-year college or university or a vocational-technical trade school.

Recipient selection will be conducted as follows:

  • First Lutheran Scholarships will be selected by the First Lutheran Church Scholarship Committee consisting of six members of First Lutheran Church, one of whom selected will serve as Chair.
  • The Donna Johnson Memorial Scholarship will be selected by a committee consisting of the Pastor, Church Council President, First Lutheran Scholarship Committee Chair, Church Treasurer and a Donna Johnson family member.

When possible, awards will be announced at the spring high school honors program.
