The UMHEF scholarship applications for the 2016-2017 school year are officially open on www.umhef.org! This starts out the 51st year of providing scholarships to UMC students who are seeking higher education at United Methodist-related schools, colleges, universities & seminaries. Last year we provided over $2.2 million in scholarships nearly 1200 students.
The United Methodist Church is a thriving body of diverse individuals. We have a goal to have our recipient diversity reflect that of the Church. We know that there are students, family and community members that may not speak English, so we have new materials translated for Korean and Spanish-speaking populations.
Printable materials in Korean available here.
Reminder of the 1/16/16 deadline for the UMLS scholarship application.This scholarship is for an EXCEPTIONAL student leader living in the Southeast Jurisdiction of the UMC and attending a United Methodist-related college/university.
