Scholarship opportunities for United Methodist students in the Alaska and Pacific Northwest Conferences


Are you a United Methodist college student with membership in a church in the Alaska or Pacific Northwest Conference? If so, the Pacific Northwest Conference has a scholarship program available for students pursuing a degree through an accredited program, college or university. Applications must be completed by the end of the day, March 31st!

These scholarships are being offered to students who are members of a United Methodist ministry setting (church or campus ministry) in the Alaska or Pacific Northwest Conference. We will be offering a limited number of $1,500 scholarships.

Since starting this program in 2018, the Pacific Northwest Conference has awarded scholarships totaling $87,000 to 58 students in the Alaska and Pacific Northwest Conferences.

United Methodist students can also apply for scholarships from the General Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry. Last year, five students from the Pacific Northwest Conference received over $6,000 of support through scholarships they manage. Students who are members of The United Methodist Church may apply for a Fall 2023 GBHEM scholarship online before March 30, 2023, on their website

Finally, applications are now open for scholarships from the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation. Every year, UMHEF awards $2+ million to students planning to attend one of the 100+ UM-related colleges, universities, and seminaries across the country. Apply by March 1, 2023, on their website.
