Sowing Seeds of Faith Through 472 Scholarships Totaling $355,700


The Georgia United Methodist Foundation’s Scholarship Ministry focuses on developing the next generation of spiritual leaders. Every year, we partner with Georgia students' United Methodist churches, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, and United Methodist schools of higher education to award United Methodist Dollars for Scholars scholarships. Each total scholarship award is valued at up to $4,000 per student. These GUMF scholarships are made possible by generous donors who have established legacy gifts for this purpose. If you would like to endow a new scholarship in honor or memory of a loved one or donate to one of the scholarship funds listed below, please contact GUMF at 770-449-6726, 877-220-5664 or
