Supporting young people and students through scholarships not only ensures the future of the church in mission but also supports active young leaders of today. The World Communion Scholarship Program supports United Methodist students and those who are directly related to Global Ministries mission partners so that they may complete their master’s or doctoral studies at universities or seminaries. International Leadership Development Grants also support students who are directly related to Global Ministries mission partner institutions (church, ecumenical or grassroots) for further studies. Additional national and international leadership-development grants support bachelor level and post-secondary studies.
