Every year, the Georgia United Methodist Foundation partners with Georgia students' United Methodist churches, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, and United Methodist churches, colleges, universities and seminaries to provide United Methodist Dollars for Scholars (UMFDS) scholarships to students. 

To qualify, students must be an active, full member of a Georgia United Methodist Church for at least one year prior to applying. They must also be enrolled or plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate or graduate degree program at one of the 113 participating United Methodist higher education institutions.
