Carl Lotz Scholarship

The Carl Lotz Scholarship was set up as a result of an amazing gift to St John’s Evangelical Church. Funds were set aside to pay for scholarships to St John’s church members furthering their education. St John’s believes in responsible stewardship and has opened up the scholarship process to all students in Hardin County. The St John’s congregation believes in furthering education, success and giving all glory to GOD. As stated in Colossians 3:23-24 “and whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ”. St John’s wants to assist dedicated individuals wishing to further educate themselves, in the field of their choice, while remaining in GOD’s grace.

PURPOSE: To provide a scholarship to a Hardin County student or church member who plans to further their education and/or training for their career.

ELIGIBILITY: Any individual that attends school or church within Hardin County is eligible to receive this scholarship. Priority will be given to St John’s members, then other active church members within the county. All applicants must complete the required steps and will be screened by the scholarship committee members. Previous scholarship awardees must submit a new application each year. You will not be guaranteed a renewal scholarship.


  1. Complete the online application by 11:59 pm on April 28, 2023. Please answer all of the following questions.
  2. If you are a current student, an up-to-date transcript MUST be sent to the church office.

If you are not an active church member, a letter of recommendation from a teacher, coach, counselor or other mentor will be accepted.

All three of these steps must be completed and received by the church for consideration of this scholarship.
