Can I apply to both General Named Endowed Scholarship & UM Dollars for Scholars?

Yes, but you can only receive ONE AWARD from the Foundation per year. So you can apply to both, and we will award you with the higher award. We'll return the $1,000 church check to the church if you applied for UM Dollars for Scholars, and determined the General Named Endowed Program would give you more scholarship. We want you to get the most support available!

How do I know if I can get $2,000/$3,000/$4,000 from UM Dollars For Scholars?

Any student sponsored by their local church ($1,000) will have their gift doubled by UMHEF, bringing the total to $2,000. Any additional amounts awarded to an individual student through UM Dollars for Scholars depends on the participation of the student's school and UM conference foundation, each of which can contribute an additional $1,000 for a potential total of $4,000. See the UM Dollars For Scholars page for a complete listing of participating schools and UM conference foundations.
