Scholarships to Fuel Your Dreams

One of the major obstacles to students who are preparing for their future at a college or university is a lack of financial resources. Every year, we award an average of $5.5 million to help students pursue their dreams and opening pathways for people of all backgrounds to earn their degrees and serve as the next generation of leaders.

Licensing & Course of Study

The Course of Study (COS) is a five-year program that trains and educates men and women who are interested in becoming full- or part-time local pastors. If this is the path you’re seeking, GBHEM welcomes you and will walk alongside you in this new faith journey.

Regional LEAD Hubs

LEAD Hub projects address everything from the contextual chaplaincy needs of the region, to educational programs that help elementary students learn about food safety and environmental protection.

CCTEF Grants

The Central Conference Theological Education Fund (CCTEF) goal is to strengthen theological education and pastoral formation in the Central Conferences in Africa, Europe and the Philippines and approved $10 million for CCTEF from the World Service Fund.
