As the cost of attending college increases, financial hardship often serves as a barrier to gaining a college degree. The cost of tuition, room and board, and books can be overwhelming for college-bound students, particularly first-generation college students. For over ten years the Reach for the Gold Book Scholarship has recognized academic and benevolent achievement among young women of color, and supported continued success through the first year of college.

Continuing Student Scholarships
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide assistance to Lutheran women who are second-career students entering their final year at an ELCA seminary. This scholarship was established in 1996 to honor the first bishop of the ELCA, Bishop Herbert W. Chilstrom, and his wife, the Rev. Corinne Chilstrom. It was intentionally begun during the 25th anniversary year of the ordination of women in the predecessor ELCA bodies. The average award has been between $600 and $1,000, and is awarded to women who are working toward ordained ministry.
