Concordia University Ann Arbor is pleased to announce an unprecedented level of financial support for adult and post-traditional learners who wish to further their education at one of the fastest-growing colleges in the Midwest.


Four new scholarship programs have been made available for the 2018-19 academic year. Earlier this fall, Concordia announced the first of the opportunities, the Alumni Scholarship program, open to all alumni of Concordia University Ann Arbor and Wisconsin.

In addition to alumni, scholarships are now available for employees of Christian churches and schools, as well as Concordia’s official business and academic partners.

To be eligible, applicants must enroll in any of the approved academic programs offered through Concordia’s School of Arts and Sciences, Haab School of Business, or School of Education.

“We recognize how difficult it is today for adult learners to find the financial support they need to further their career and personal vocations,” says Dr. Michael Uden, vice provost of student enrollment and engagement. “We, at Concordia, have created these scholarships to ease their burden and help them reach their God-given potential.”
