GBHEM Awards Loans and Scholarships to 40 Cal-Nev Students

December 01, 2011

GBHEM's Office of Loans and Scholarships will be awarding more than 2,600 students a total of $5.3 million in award money for 2011 – including nearly $75,000 distributed among 40 students in the California-Nevada Annual Conference.

Pastors received certificates for their congregants to acknowledge these recipients on Student Day, November 27, 2011.
 
Overall, of those awarded, nearly 2,300 were under the age of 35, and more than 500 are enrolled in seminary pursuing a Masters of Divinity degree.
 
GBHEM thanks congregations for supporting these students by recognizing United Methodist Student Day, World Communion Sunday, and Native American Sunday – which help fund a portion of GBHEM's loans and scholarships. (The remaining funds for these awards come from gifts, annuities, and endowments GBHEM has invested and administered for decades.)
