GBHEM Scholarships administers scholarship programs with one general application. Criteria for each scholarship program varies. For general scholarships, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and be an active member of the United Methodist Church. Scholarship programs are divided into three categories: general scholarships, racial-ethnic scholarships and ministry-as-a-career scholarships.
Funding for our scholarships is made possible through the generosity of our fellow United Methodists and through decades of sound financial stewardship by our agency. Financial support for all GBHEM and scholarships comes from multiple sources. Every year, we award an average of $5.5 million to help students in the United States and abroad pursue their dreams through higher education.
