Communications scholarships and fellowships

Encouraging Service Through Scholarships and Fellowships

Supporting those persons who seek to serve the church through the ministry of communications is an important way we fulfill our mission to tell the stories of The United Methodist Church and its people.

We believe that it is vital for the Church to have professional communicators who reflect the diversity of the global United Methodist Church. We therefore offer a variety of named scholarships and fellowships that provide critical training and experience for persons interested in pursuing a career in religious communications.
