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!
See the Participant Guide or the UM Dollars For Scholars application for a complete list.
The check will not be returned to the student but will be sent back to the church.
Yes, it needs to be a check from your church on a church check, no personal checks will be accepted.
No. All applicants will be communicated with via postal mail to let them know the final outcome.
Scholarship award funds are sent directly to the school AFTER the verification of enrollment is submitted to UMHEF. The deadline is typically November 15th.
It depends on the number of applicants. But typically for a March 1st deadline we aim to notify recipients by May 1st.
It depends on the individual scholarship and school type, but the majority of our scholarships have a deadline of March 1st annually. You should typically be notified by May 1st. If you do not receive a scholarship but applied, we will contact you via email and postal letter.
All scholarships are paid directly to the school and are for tuition, room and board.
