Seminary Scholarships

The Methodist Foundation for Arkansas Seminary Scholarships aim to strengthen United Methodist churches in Arkansas by ensuring strong leadership in our local communities. These seminary scholarships enable some of our best and brightest students to answer God's call and become local church leaders as elders and deacons. Assisting these young people is important and satisfying work, and the MFA's donors have responded generously in making these scholarships possible.

Since the program's inception, the Foundation has awarded 36 total scholarships to Arkansas students attending United Methodist seminaries. We currently have seven students enrolled as Foundation scholarship recipients.

Applications are now open for the Methodist Foundation for Arkansas' 2022 Seminary Scholars program. A limited number of full-tuition scholarships are available now to Arkansas students enrolling/attending a United Methodist seminary with intentions of returning to the state upon graduation. The application deadline for the Elder scholarship is Tuesday, March 15, 2022.  The application deadline for the Deacon scholarship is Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

Scholarships are available for persons seeking Ordination as a Deacon or Elder in the Arkansas Annual Conference.
