Scholarship Program

Scholarship funds are an important part of the Foundation. Our current endowed and managed scholarship funds help provide for our next generation of United Methodist clergy, diaconal ministers and Christian educators. Scholarship funds can be established honoring or memorializing loved ones who have been an inspiration to others. Scholarships benefit college students more than a donor will ever know.

Easing the burden of the high cost of tuition and books can be a tremendous relief for any student who faces huge debt obligations following graduation and upon entering into ministry. An endowment that provides scholarship funds that will be used to shape the life of one servant, who will in turn shape the life of many, is a tangible way to fulfill the call to "Follow Jesus, Make Disciples and Transform the World."
