Scholarships for Students Attending HBCUs

Applications are currently closed.

Thanks to the generosity of some of our UMHEF donors, we offer several scholarships to students attending or planning to attend one of the country’s Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) that are United Methodist-related. Awards range in value, typically between $500 and $5,000. The number of awards are limited each year and are not guaranteed. Applications are typically accepted January 1 РMarch 1 for the following academic year.

At this time, the HBCU institutions whose students these awards may support include:


  • Be attending or planning to attend a United Methodist-related HBCU
  • Be a member of a United Methodist Church for at least one year
  • Be in good standing with the college/university
  • Must have a GPA of at least 2.5

To Apply: Applicants for this award are invited to use the General Named Endowed application. Applications close at 11:59pm CST on March 16, 2022.
