Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
When will I hear back about the scholarship I am applying for?
We will notify all applicants about scholarship decisions in July 2023.
If I'm an international student, can I still apply?
Yes, if you are attending a U.S. institution. Thrivent Charitable's policy is that administered scholarships may only be granted to benefit students attending colleges and universities in the United States that meet IRS regulations, therefore we can only support students attending U.S. institutions. Please note that the 2021 scholarship application cycle is now closed. Check back in March of 2022 for the next round of scholarship applications.
