Current or perspective college students who are members of The United Methodist Church may apply for a Fall 2018 general scholarship from the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
The scholarships provide undergraduate level assistance from $500 to $1,000 and graduate level assistance from $100 to $2,000 per year. To be eligible, you must have been an active member of a local United Methodist church for at least one year and have a minimum GPA of 2.5.
Applications are being accepted from Jan. 3 to March 7, 2018. Apply online at www.gbhem.org/scholarshipapplication
This General Board of Higher Education and Ministry application process is also used by the New England Conference Scholarship Committee to award the MERIT scholarship for the New England Conference. The MERIT scholarship is awarded to a United Methodist student who is enrolled or will be enrolled in a full-time degree program at an institution of higher education recognized as United Methodist by the University Senate. It is not required that the institution be within the bounds of the Conference from which the award originates.
This scholarship is for “merit." Merit can be in terms of academic scholarship, church involvement, financial need, special vocational preparation for ministry or other service, or a combination of these factors as may be determined by the annual conference board. Again, to be eligible, you must have been an active member of a local United Methodist church for at least one year and have a minimum GPA of 2.5.
