Courtney Weller is Upstate New York’s first “Fund for Leaders” Scholar in 2010. Courtney will attend Gettysburg Seminary. The Fund for Leaders provides scholarships to seminarians to attend any ELCA seminary. Upstate New York Synod has its own Fund for Leaders account. Our goal is to increase its principal so that more scholarships are available.
Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia is the seminary with which Upstate New York Synod is in a formal supporting partnership. The Feed the Roots Appeal plans to increase scholarship support for seminarians attending “our” seminary.
