Upper New York Annual Conference Scholarships
The Upper New York Annual Conference College Scholarships Committee offers the following two scholarship categories:
Conference Merit Award: The annual Student Day special offering supports General Conference Loans and Scholarships. Of the total funds collected from churches in our conference, the General Conference returns 10% for this scholarship. Awards are to United Methodist students who are enrolled in an institution of higher education recognized as United Methodist by the University Senate (see list at http://tiny.cc/umcollegesuniversities). Merit is evaluated in terms of academic scholarship, church involvement, financial need, vocational preparation for ministry, or other service. Your church must have participated in the Student Day offering.
All application materials for these scholarships are due April 1, 2013.
