The United Methodist Church
Southwestern College is affiliated with The United Methodist Church. The Wesleyan tradition encourages critical thinking about faith. Consequently, Methodists have always supported higher education by providing places for students to learn and by providing them with scholarships to support their learning.
Two areas of the United Methodist organization offer scholarships – typically to students who have been active members of a United Methodist church for at least one year. The General Board of Higher Education & Ministry manages scholarships for both graduates and undergraduates and the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation supports additional scholarship programs, including the popular United Methodist Dollars for Scholars (UMHEF Dollars for Scholars).
