UMHEF Scholarship Applications Are Now Open


The Georgia United Methodist Foundation partners with donors, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, and churches to offer scholarships to Georgia Methodist students who attend United Methodist colleges, universities, and seminaries. Since 2011, the Foundation has awarded over 900 United Methodist Dollars for Scholars scholarships totaling nearly $800,000.

UMHEF applications are NOW OPEN for scholarships for the 2023-2024 school year. UMHEF needs your help getting this life-changing financial aid into the hands of more Methodist students.

Here are a few key details.

  • UMHEF awards about $2 milion ever year to nearly 1,000 students through these scholarships.
  • Students must be planning to attend a United Methodist-related school of higher education in 2023-2024 and be a member, for at least a year, before applying to one of these churches: The United Methodist Church, Global Methodist Church, African Methodist Episcopal Church, or Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.

Applications and required supporting materials are due March 1, 2023. (A few exceptions apply with later deadlines, noted on their site.) Learn more here.
