Laymon H. & Ruth S. Lantz Scholarship Awarded

This scholarship fund is intended to support qualified graduate students in either the Seminary or the Master of Arts in Counseling at Eastern Mennonite University.


The Layman H. & Ruth S. Lantz Scholarship was established by an anonymous donor who wanted to honor her parents, who have made the world a better place to live though their lifetime support of so many worthwhile causes. Their devotion to their faith and deep commitment to service have been outstanding features of their lives for over eight decades. The interest and enthusiasm they demonstrate for higher education and training in the human service fields has been an inspiration to others.


Consideration for this scholarship is given to applicants with demonstrated financial need, clear future goals, academic performance, character, and a sense of calling for the human service field.


Sabrina Burress, the 2017 recipient of the Laymon H. & Ruth S. Lantz Scholarship is a pursuing a Master of Arts degree in the Counseling program at EMU.
