Our Lord Jesus has given Martin Luther College a noble task: training the next pastors, teachers, and staff ministers of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Since 1865, at MLC and our predecessor schools, Northwestern College and Dr. Martin Luther College, we have been honored and humbled to do this crucial work, training over 90% of WELS called workers.
Our work is not only important; it’s also, if we may be frank, expensive. About two-thirds of our student body graduates with college debt, averaging more than $20,000. Some students are hindered by cost from coming to MLC at all.
In view of this, Martin Luther College is committed to assisting students in whatever way we can. We award $2 million annually in institutional financial aid, some based on student need and some on student merit.
In addition, generous people, motivated by love for their Savior, have stepped up to help. And so we’ve compiled this information into one place, which contains just a sampling of these donors, as a tribute of gratitude—to them, to many faithful generations of students at Martin Luther College, and to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
