Luther Seminary cares deeply about the financial well-being of all our students and their families. The Stewardship Leaders Program has developed six offerings based on the results of the financial wellness survey sent to all students in October 2020. These opportunities are open to Luther Seminary students and their partners. NOTE: Students graduating in June of 2021 can take advantage of these opportunities through the summer.
