The World Communion Scholarship Program, formerly called the Crusade Scholarship Program, was established in 1944 as a response to the devastation of World War II, and was an effort by the United Methodist Church to promote world peace and understanding. This was done by providing students from outside the United States with the opportunity to study in the U.S. as well as other countries across the globe. The hope was that students, having completed their study/training program, would return to their home countries to serve their churches and communities. Up until the present time, the CSP has supported approximately 4,200 students world-wide. Graduates have included doctors, ambassadors, rural developers, teachers, psychologists, theologians, head of churches, to name a few, and are women and men from Global Ministries' partnerships from around the world.
Goals & Objectives
To fund 80 new and continuing World Communion Scholarship recipients per year.
Every year we have a process of application receipt, review, selection, and support. In this past years, we have added on to this list mentoring and connecting where possible.
