Congratulations to Our Scholarship Recipients!


GUMF would like to congratulate the 63 Georgia United Methodist students who received scholarships for the 2021-2022 school year! These students have chosen to continue their academic and spiritual journeys at a United Methodist college, university, or seminary.

Since 2011, GUMF has awarded 853 scholarships totaling $726,700 thanks to the generosity of individual donors, foundations, congregations, Sunday school classes, and GUMF staff and trustees. Each $1,000 scholarship has the potential to be quadrupled when matched with a $1,000 award from the student’s local United Methodist church, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, and participating United Methodist-related schools. 

To learn more about establishing your own $25,000 scholarship endowment, which will generate a $1,000 annual scholarship in perpetuity, please:
