General Named Endowed Scholarships

Apply HERE January 1 – March 1, 2024

The UMHEF General Named Endowed Scholarship program includes awards of varying amounts from 130+ named scholarship funds established by various donors. These traditionally competitive awards consider GPA, income, leadership, etc. Strong preference is given to students attending United Methodist-related schools in the United States. In rare cases, a student attending a non-UM-related school may be awarded.

Unlike the UM Dollars for Scholars program, General Named Endowed Scholarships do not require matching funds from a student’s church.


In addition to these basic eligibility requirements, some funds have additional criteria (i.e. from a specific state/region, majoring in specified field, etc.) that students must meet in order to be considered. Some awards are also designated to support students of various diverse backgrounds and ethnicities. We will match you with the award(s) for which you are most eligible based on your completed application.
