Pre-Application Form – Deadline of Submission: June 1, 2015

Many thanks for your request for scholarship application materials from the General Board of Global Ministries. Please read carefully the attached documents to understand our four mission emphases and the eligibility criteria for application. If, after review of the ‘Eligibility Determination – Sheet #1’, you believe you are eligible to apply, we invite you to submit a pre-application containing the following: one page with your personal and school information, a second page answering three brief essay questions and a third page for recommender information.

We are very sorry that we only have this pre-application form in English and Spanish.  For those of you who speak French or Portuguese, please feel free to write your answers in French or Portuguese.

If you do not fit the eligibility criteria, we strongly recommend that you seek funding elsewhere. Global Ministries’ funds are very limited and the scholarship committee will make decisions based on priorities and eligibility before moving forward.

Steps to follow, please:
1)      Read carefully the Eligibility Determination – Sheet # 1.
2)      If you believe you meet the eligibility criteria, please fill in the Personal/Academic Info – Sheet # 2.
3)      Please also respond to the three questions – Sheet # 3 and indicate recommender information – Sheet # 4. Please limit your responses to no more than 150 words each.
4)      Deadlines: Please email Sheets # 2, # 3, and # 4 to: scholars@umcmission.org by no later than June 1, 2015. We will acknowledge to you the safe arrival of your materials.
5)      After pre-screening of materials, we will either invite you to submit a full application form, or we will respectfully let you know if we are unable to respond to your request for financial support.
6)      If we invite you to submit a full application, we will inform you at that time regarding the next steps and schedules.
