The WMU Foundation is a Baptist missions foundation established in 1995 by national Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) under the leadership of Dr. Dellanna O’Brien, former executive director of national WMU. The WMU Foundation offers a variety of opportunities, including financial aid for those who are pursuing mission work both in the U.S. and around the world. The WMU Foundation is its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. We are not involved in publishing materials or coordinating ministries of national WMU although we do financially support national WMU and their ministry partners.
The WMU Foundation assists Southern Baptist students, including the children of Baptist missionaries (NAMB & IMB), and those preparing for Baptist missions service. Individuals with no current Baptist connection cannot be considered for a scholarship. Applicants should fill out a single application form, and will be placed into the scholarship category for which they qualify. In addition to the application, students must also ask two references to submit an online endorsement form.
