Serving United Methodist Students
The GBHEM Office of Loans and Scholarships offers financial aid to United Methodist students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees. Every year, we award an average of $5.5 million to help students in the United States and abroad pursue their dreams through higher education. With this financial aid, GBHEM is opening pathways for students of all backgrounds to earn their degrees and serve as the next generation of leaders for the church and the world.

The GBHEM scholarship application opens in January of each year. You can only submit one application per year where it will be screened for all possible eligible programs. You may indicate on the first page of the scholarship application which of the below listed programs you would most like to be considered for.

Where Does the Money Come From?
Funding for our loans and scholarships is made possible through the generosity of our fellow United Methodists and through decades of sound financial stewardship by our agency. Financial support for all GBHEM loans and scholarships comes from five primary sources:
22 percent from wills and annuities.
13 percent from United Methodist Special Sundays
1 percent from online gifts.
1 percent from fiduciary income.
