United Methodist Seminary Scholarship | Iowa United Methodist Foundation

The United Methodist Seminary Scholarships are scholarships designated for students who are following the call to join the ministry.

Scholarship applications are open December 1 – March 1 annually. All applications and required documents, such as essays, references, and transcripts can be submitted through the online portal. Once you click on the application link, you will be brought to a third-party website hosted by Kaleidoscope.


Note for applicants: we are aware of the delays affecting FAFSA forms this year. While we encourage students and parents to create their FSA IDs and complete their FAFSA when it opens, we will also accept 1040 tax forms or an estimate for student aid eligibility on the application. Please have other documents, such as your transcript(s), ready to upload.
