UNITED METHODIST DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS APPLICATION

The United Methodist Dollars for Scholars program involves matching support from a student’s church, UMHEF, participating United Methodist-related schools and participating UMC Conference Foundations. You can apply for both the Named Endowed Scholarship and UM Dollars For Scholars Program through UMHEF, and we will provide you with the largest scholarship support.

HOW IT WORKS:
1. Your church supports the student with $1,000 (on a church check)
2. UMHEF will match that $1,000
3. Participating United Methodist-related schools will match with $1,000
4. Participating UMC Conference Foundations will match $1,000
Your potential scholarship total is up to $4,000
List of participating schools and conference foundations are available in PDF form here.
