General Named Endowed Scholarships

The main application season for the 2021-2022 academic year is now closed. Learn about the few scholarships still accepting applications here.

The UMHEF General Named Endowed Scholarship program includes awards of various amounts from named scholarship funds established by various donors. In addition to basic eligibility requirements, some funds have additional criteria (i.e., resident of specific conference, majoring in specified field, etc.) students must meet in order to be considered. We will match you with the award(s) for which you are most eligible based on your application.

Generally, applications are accepted between January 1 and March 1 for the following academic year. Applications are not currently being accepted. During the open application season you may also apply for the United Methodist Dollars for Scholars program, but you will be considered for only one award from UMHEF funds during an academic year.

Unlike the UM Dollars for Scholars program, General Named Endowed Scholarships do not require matching funds from a student’s UM Church.
