Scholarship connects ethnic students with mentors

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UMNS)-The United Methodist Board of Higher Education and Ministry has launched a new scholarship program for ethnic high school and college students interested in ordained ministry.

"Journey Toward Ordained Ministry" will connect mentors to 10 ethnic minority high school or college students interested in pursuing ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church.

Developed by the board's division of ordained ministry, the program requires participation in a mentoring program and provides scholarships of $5,000 each per academic year, with continued mentoring through seminary and ordination.

Undergraduate students are required to attend a United Methodist-related college or university, and master's degree students are required to attend a United Methodist seminary or theological school. The program will select additional students as participants complete their seminary education.

Additional information is available from Saul Espino at (615) 340-7392 or by e-mailing espino@gbhem.org. Applications are available online, www.gbhem.org/resourcelibrary.asp.
