Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
Matthew 28:19-20

Questions and Answers

  • How much is the Munderloh scholarship grant and what criteria must an applicant meet in being considered for a grant?

    Each scholarship grant is $3,000 for the academic year and is awarded to full-time students studying to become ordained parish ministers at one of the four seminaries the Foundation supports. Applicants for grants are limited to students pursuing a Masters of Divinity Degree and students in alternate programs leading to ordination. The grant is awarded primarily upon the financial need and academic performance of an applicant as compared to other applicants as determined by the Board of Trustees.

    Following the philosophy of its founder, Alfred Munderloh, the Foundation requires each scholarship grant recipient to sign a "challenge grant" agreement to accept the challenge to recruit others to a career in the parish ministry.


  • May a grant recipient reapply for a scholarship grant?

    A grant recipient may reapply for scholarship grants for no more than two subsequent academic years of seminary study following the award of the first grant or a total of $9,000. No grants are available for the intern/vicarage year.


  • How do I apply for a Scholarship Grant?

    For initial applications, the Munderloh Application for Grant form (available through the seminary financial aid office or downloaded from here) must be completed and submitted to the seminary financial aid office, along with an autobiographical statement, academic transcripts, recommendation from pastor and recommendation from a teacher or other person. Initial applications must be received by the Foundation by the July 15th preceding each academic year.

    For reapplications for prior scholarship grant recipients, the Application for Grant form may be downloaded from here, completed and forwarded directly to the student's assigned Munderloh trustee by the July 1st preceding each academic year. The autobiographical statement, transcripts and recommendations are not required for reapplications. The July 1st deadline is strictly enforced unless there are extenuating circumstances.

    For reapplications where no prior grant was awarded, the Application for Grant form (without the autobiographical statement, transcripts and recommendations) should be completed and submitted to the seminary financial aid office so that they may be received by the Foundation by the July 15th preceding each academic year.
