United Methodist Higher Education Foundation scholarships

What is it? The United Methodist Higher Education Foundation awards scholarships each year to deserving students all over the country.  Each year, we distribute over $2 million annually to more than 1,000 students attending over 100 United Methodist-related institutions of higher learning.

Who is eligible? Must be an active, full member of The United Methodist Church for at least one year prior to applying. Members of other Methodist denominations are not eligible.

Must be enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time degree program (graduate or undergraduate) at a United Methodist-related college or seminary in the United States.

International students must be attending a United Methodist-related institution in the United States.

Doctoral (PhD) candidates are not eligible.

Students may receive only ONE scholarship from the Foundation per year. All awards are made for the fall term each year. UMHEF will transfer award funds to the recipient's school in the fall after verification of full-time enrollment is received from the school's Registrar's Office. It is the recipient's responsibility to request and ensure that their Registrar's Office sends verification of their enrollment to UMHEF no later than October 1. Award checks will not be mailed out until after mid-October.
