Scholarship Sunday

What is Scholarship Sunday?

Scholarship Sunday is an opportunity to highlight the resources available to United Methodist students through your local church, your Annual Conference/Conference Foundation and GBHEM's Office of Loans & Scholarships.

When do we celebrate Scholarship Sunday?

Some celebrate in the fall with a “Back to School” focus and some celebrate in conjunction with graduation recognition in the spring; you can choose what works best for your church. 

What’s the first step?

• Set a date for Scholarship Sunday and begin planning.

• Find someone passionate about higher education to help you organize and plan your day.

 Review this Resource Guide.

• Pray for students in your church and around the world.
