Bonus College Scholarship Opportunity
For DWUMC members planning to attend a United Methodist-affiliated college or university in 2018-19! There is up to $4000 of combined scholarships available. Our own $1000 Phil McGuire Memorial Scholarship + up to $3000 Dollars for Scholars available through our UMC Conference. To be eligible for consideration for the additional scholarship, you must be sponsored by our UMM.
So, the first step in the process is to submit your application for the UMM scholarship to the church office by December 28, 2018. Click Here to Print a Scholarship Application! Any applicants accepted for sponsorship will receive a $1000 scholarship from the UMM and will be notified by mid-January, 2019.
If selected, the second step will be to apply to the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation for an additional $3000 in scholarship funds. This application is found at www.umhef.org/UMDFSapp.php and must be submitted by March 1, 2019.
The UMM will continue to award our traditional $1000 scholarships in the late spring to select candidates not attending United Methodist affiliated universities. That application will be available in the spring.
KSU Wesley Foundation
The KSU Wesley Foundation was started by the Kennesaw United Methodist Church to serve students at our state university. Our Wesley Foundation is also supported by the Methodist annual conference as one of their extension ministries and missions but most of our funds are raised through donation. One important way that they get their donations is through their Annual Golf Tournament. For more information, Email Evan DeYoung, Director or visit the KSU Wesley Foundation's website.
