Macon UMC Scholarship Application



To provide monetary assistance to persons entering or currently attending a college, university, trade school or other career opportunities that have additional educational or training requirements.


The awards will be a one-time only award, but the awardee may reapply annually as long as he/she is a student in good standing ( a C grade or above or its equivalent).



There are 3 classes of eligibility:

  • Members of the MUMC and their immediate families (i.e. sons and daughters) and active Constituents of MUMC and their immediate families;
  • Members and Constituents and their immediate families of the Britton, Clinton, and Tecumseh UMC s (i.e. our cluster member churches);
  • and prospective students from outside the UMC cluster churches mentioned above.

Priority of awards will be given first to members and constituents of the Macon UMC, then to members and constituents of the Britton, Clinton, and Tecumseh UMCs, then to other members of the community.


Amount to be dispersed:


The amount to be dispersed and the number of awards may vary annually according to the decision of the Administrative Board.
