Scholarships are investments in employees

We encourage staff members at our locations across the country and at our national headquarters to pursue opportunities in higher education.

  • Staff Education Loan or Scholarship: Our locations in any state may provide loans or scholarships to employees for education purposes. Availability may vary by location. This applies to any higher education degree.
  • The Hoeger Scholarship and Loan Program: The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Foundation established this program in 2001 to provide support for employees pursuing an education in nursing at any undergraduate level, at any regionally or nationally accredited academic institution. In partnership with an employee’s location, this program may provide up to two-thirds the cost to earn a nursing degree for eligible employees.

Special opportunities in Minnesota
