Dollars for Scholars

This program involves matching support from a student’s church, UMHEF, participating United Methodist-related schools, and participating UMC conference foundations.

You may apply for both the General Named Endowed Scholarship and UMDFS program through UMHEF and we will provide you with the largest scholarship support for which you qualify.

  • Student’s church supports with $1,000 (on a church check sent to UMHEF)
  • UMHEF will match that $1,000
  • Participating United Methodist-related schools will match with $1,000
  • Participating UMC Conference Foundations may match up to $1,000
  • Your potential UMDFS scholarship total is up to $4,000
  • You must apply annually to be awarded a scholarship each school year
  • Please note that some schools may not provide the same matching award to graduate students; check with your school to verify matching for your degree program
