Scholarship Information

Concordia offers a wide variety of scholarship programs for students of all types. We believe that any student should have the opportunity to attend Concordia. The scholarship package awarded to a student varies from family to family and each student is given individual attention.

While we are privileged to offer these scholarships to you, please bear in mind that Concordia Lutheran High School and the churches of the Concordia Educational Association review student records at the end of each school year and non-compliance can result in the potential loss of or decrease in the amount of scholarship.

Please Note: You must apply for admission before you are eligible to receive a scholarship or financial aid. 

If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Schumm, Director of Financial Aid, at (260) 483-1102, ext. 219 or
