IMPORTANT – Two options for scholarships

There are two scholarship application options for Missouri Conference seminarians. (Options are listed below.)  Missouri seminarians may choose one option or the other in which to apply. Make note of the deadlines on these scholarships.

The Excellence in Clergy Leadership scholarship is offered through the General Board of Higher Education. GBHEM will place you in a pool for all scholarships that you qualify for. First-time users will be asked to set up a username and password to use throughout the General Board of Higher Education scholarship process. 

The Excellence in Clergy Leadership Scholarship will likely be the most financially beneficial scholarship for full-time candidates enrolled in a United Methodist seminary. Missouri Conference seminarians may apply for either the Excellence in Clergy Leadership Scholarship OR Missouri Conference financial assistance.
