55 Hoosiers receive UM scholarships or loans totaling $43,500
When United Methodists place money or a check into Special Sunday offering envelopes on United Methodist Student Day this year on Nov. 30 or an alternate date, they actually put people in places where God has called them. They may be helping a seminary student who has been called to be a pastor or missionary.
Gifts may be used to help a student complete nursing school or get an education degree to become a teacher. Whatever their calling, students bolstered by the generous gifts of their fellow United Methodists eventually will bring their faith to the workplace.
Contributions on United Methodist Student Day fuel both career ambitions and spiritual aspirations of future church, community and world leaders.
Here are Hoosier recipients of United Methodist scholarships or loans. These students are attending universities and seminaries. To qualify, they must be members of The United Methodist Church but do not need to attend a UM-related institution.
