Lutheran Guarantee

We’re committed to ensuring our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ have the opportunity to receive a Lutheran, Christ-centered education. Through our Lutheran Guarantee, undergraduate students can earn at least $25,000 per year in institutional aid.  Graduate students may also qualify for a special $340 per credit hour rate.

Lutheran Guarantee for Undergraduate Students

Concordia Nebraska guarantees $25,000 minimum per year in institutional scholarships and grants if you are:

  • A member of a Lutheran congregation 
  • A dependent of a Concordia alumnus 
  • A dependent of a full-time, professional, rostered Lutheran church worker 
  • A graduate of a Lutheran high school 

While the minimum is $25,000, many of our scholarships stack. In fact, last year the average amount of institutional scholarships and grants received by those who qualified for the Lutheran Guarantee was more than $27,000!

Available to students starting at Concordia in Fall 2023.
