2013 LCEF Scholarship Winners Coming Soon!

Like us on Facebook to see 2013 LCEF SCHOLARSHIP Winners coming soon:

We know you'd like to know! Find out who is awarded the seven 2013 $1,000 LCEF scholarships by liking our Facebook page or watching our News-Feed page

It is preferred that you watch for announcements coming soon rather than phone our office directly. There are seven scholarships (one per district) to be announced during the month of May. Winter weather in May has delayed results a bit in some areas.

We will post it first on our Facebook page; watch for seven separate district announcements depending on which district a student's home congregation belongs: Iowa East, Iowa West, Minnesota North, Minnesota South, North Dakota, North Wisconsin and South Wisconsin. Prayers for all 120 of our 2013 applicants!
