  • create a personal account so that you can log-in at any time to your applicant portal
  • manage your personal information
  • start, save, and come back to unfinished applications
  • upload and send required documents electronically (i.e. transcripts, essays, etc.)
  • view the status of your application(s)
  • receive notification of awards
  • and much more!

General Named Endowed Scholarship applicants will be required to apply electronically through SmarterSelect. Dollars for Scholars applicants will have the option of applying through SmarterSelect or downloading a printable application to complete with your church.

Watch for more details about the process, coming soon! As always, UMHEF representatives will be on hand beginning January 1, 2020 to answer any questions. But, we are confident this is a smarter way to apply – faster and more secure – with SmarterSelect!
