Education Grants for Lutheran Education

Christ Our Savior provides educational grants for families who wish to send their children to Lutheran schools, at both the elementary and the university level.

We at COS believe that Christian education is a three-way partnership between student, parent, and church. This partnership is an extension of the ministry of LCMS congregations, with or without schools. Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church believes that a Lutheran education is a blessing at every level and has made the commitment to support families in our congregation who wish to provide this opportunity for their children. Therefore, we are excited to offer a tuition grant to those member families who wish to provide a Lutheran elementary (K-8) education for their children, or to undergrad students who wish to attend one of the Concordia Universities.

All applications for the 2023-24 school year must be submitted to the church office by April 30, 2023.

All grant applications must be approved by our Senior Pastor. You can find the grant application below, or simply contact the church office by phone (734.522.6830) or email (
