Churches can help supplement GBHEM scholarships


GBHEM's Office of Loans and Scholarships will be awarding over 2,300 students a total of $5 million in financial assistance for 2016. Your support in recognizing United Methodist Student Day, World Communion Sunday, and Native American Sunday helps fund a portion of our scholarships. The remaining funds for these awards come from gifts, annuities and endowments GBHEM has invested and administered for decades.

Click here for a report of Florida's scholarship recipients. Pastors will will receive certificates for their congregants to acknowledge for Student Day.
 
GBHEM has many applicants who did not receive a scholarship due to lack of funds. If your churches or Conference want to partner to make a difference for more students, please contact Bruce Blumer at bblumer@UMCDevelopmentCenter.org.

If you would like assistance in contacting any particular recipient feel free to give our office a call at 615-340-7344, or email Marcie Bigord at mbigord@gbhem.org.
