2016 Scholarship Recipients

The West Ohio Conference is pleased to announce the five West Ohio students receiving leadership and merit scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year.  

Through the generous donations received during The United Methodist Student Day Offering, as well as funding through the conference's Connectional Ministries office and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM), several scholarships are awarded to qualified West Ohio students who are attending accredited institutions of higher education. These leadership scholarships are awarded to support young adults in their pursuit of God’s calling in their lives, becoming strong leaders here and across the denomination.

The scholarship categories listed below support students with a range of goals, backgrounds, needs and abilities. Students who were chosen for the scholarships are active members of a United Methodist Church in West Ohio and have demonstrated strong achievement, involvement, and leadership in their churches, schools, and communities. Each student provided letters of reference that spoke to their character as well as transcripts showing their dedication to academic success.

It is the hope of the West Ohio Conference that these and all West Ohio students gain strength, courage, and wisdom in their education, faith, and calling this fall. Scholarships awarded this 2016-17 academic year reach a combined total of $13,300. To learn more, visit Undergraduate Scholarships.
