This matching program starts with a $1,000 scholarship from a student’s local church. UMHEF matches, raising the award to $2,000. Participating UM-related schools may also award, bringing the total to $3,000.

Unlike the UM Dollars for Scholars Program, endowed scholarships do not require matching funds from churches. Learn more.


My scholarship has removed the stress of student loans and finding a way to pay for college. Thank you so much for the love and support.

-Devan, Centenary College of Louisiana

Thank you for giving me this exceptional educational opportunity to explore my goals and dreams.

I wanted to reach out and thank you all for the very generous scholarship. I greatly appreciate it and truly cannot wait to start college in the fall.

-Brooke, Nebraska Wesleyan University

I am so thankful for the many UMHEF supporters that have made my scholarship possible.

-Elijah, High Point University

I just received the letter telling me that I received a scholarship through the UM Dollars for Scholars program! With all of the uncertainty in this time of COVID-19, it was nice to get some good news. I am so looking forward to attending Southwestern College in August. I appreciate your help in making that possible.

-Seth, Southwestern College
