What We're All About

The United Methodist Higher Education Foundation (UMHEF) is a non-profit foundation that has been helping students pay for college since 1965.  UMHEF is committed to supporting the dreams of students who want to further their education at a United Methodist college, university or seminary of their choice.  Sometimes students and parents need a little help cover the rising costs of tuition – that’s where we come in!  Our scholarships help students offset those costs by awarding scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000.  Each year we assist more than a thousand students with their tuition through programs such as Dollars for Scholars.  We partner with schools, United Methodist congregations and our donors to provide financial support in the amount of over $2 million annually to students all over the country.
