Our annual grant cycle has begun and we invite you to apply for Foundation grants and scholarships. Deadline for all is March 1.
If you are a seminary student or know someone who is there are two options available:
The Excellence in Clergy Leadership Scholarship is for students attending a United Methodist seminary. Awards are up to $12,500 and involve funding from a number of sources.
The Firebrand Scholarship is for seminarians who are on track to be ordained as elders by age 35.
Undergraduate students who are active in their local churches can apply for a number of Foundation scholarships. We also have funds specifically earmarked for children of clergy in the Annual Conference.
If your church is launching a new outreach program, such as a feeding ministry, after school program or other program designed specifically to reach your community outside your local church. We do not fund requests for capital improvements that are not mission-related, debt retirement, or operating funds.
