Anchor Endowed Seminary Scholarship

The Anchor Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 2012 with a bequest from the Loving Trust of Selma Bergmann.

What she believed about Jesus she spoke, and what she spoke she lived. In her final wishes were written these words based on Hebrews 6:19-20 “Reality for me is ‘My Anchor Holds’—it cannot break; it is steadfast. No earthly anchor can give that kind of security.” The Anchor Endowed Scholarship Fund awards up to four scholarships of up to $1000 annually.
