Scholarship Application Deadline

The Foundation is moving up its scholarship application deadline in order to assist students in making decisions about school choices. The applications are due April 2, 2018 and award letters will be sent the first week of May.

Applications may be found on our website under download forms. Or you may call or email the Foundation to request an application. Please note that non-seminary students may only apply for up to four awards. Seminary students may apply for an additional three awards.

Students must be active in United Methodist Church in the Mississippi Annual Conference. This is certified by the pastor’s signature on the application form.

We are once again partnering with the Wood College Foundation in awarding twenty-five $1,000 scholarships for undergraduate students. Other Foundation scholarships range from $200 to $700 per year. Seminary scholarships may be higher.
