Opisto Scholarship Program

LLC Opisto Scholarship Program

In cooperation with its sister organization, the SRK in Finland, the LLC provides 14 scholarships annually for students to attend three different cultural/folk schools called "opistos."  The three schools are located in Jämsä, Ranua, and Reisjärvi, Finland.  Scholarship applications are reviewed by the LLC Scholarship Selection Committee and approved by the LLC Board of Directors.  Nearly 400 students have participated in the program since its inception in 1982.

Students have benefited from Laestadian Lutheran faith-based teaching, an opportunity to study the Finnish language and culture, and learning practical topics in academics, craft and trades, and music.  Member LLC congregations often participate in the support of students, and places are also available for students who pay their own way.
