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!
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.
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.
