2024 Scholarship Application Deadline Extended!

UMHEF Deadline Extended to April 15

Extended Application Deadline: April 15, 2024

The United Methodist Higher Education Foundation remains committed supporting United Methodist students (and select others) as well as the UM-related colleges, universities, and seminaries they hope to attend. Due to the continued delays in financial aid and admissions processes caused by 2024 FAFSA challenges, we are aware schools need more time to receive reports in order to offer students financial aid packages. In turn, students may need more time to make an informed decision about where they’ll be attending school in the fall.

While UMHEF does not require FAFSA information on its applications, we believe these challenges have led students to put a hold on pursuing outside scholarship opportunities. We hope this deadline extension to April 15 will be helpful.

The deadline applies to UMHEF’s General Named Endowed Scholarships and the UM Dollars for Scholars program. Learn about UMHEF scholarships and apply by April 15 HERE.

Since 1965, the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, a 501(c)3  non-profit organization, has been committed to making it financially possible for United Methodist and select other students to attend United Methodist-related institutions of higher education. Annually, UMHEF awards $2+ million in scholarships.
