United Methodist Resources

As an institution that has been accredited by the University Senate of the United Methodist Church (last reaccreditation in 2006), students attending the University of Puget Sound who are members of the United Methodist Church may have access to apply for additional scholarships and financial resources from the denomination that United Methodists attending schools lacking that accreditation may not have access to.  University Chaplain Dave Wright, a United Methodist clergyperson, helps connect United Methodist students with these resources. Feel free to contact Dave Wright or to visit any of the following sites for more information.

  • The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry offers a range of scholarship and loan programs to United Methodist students.  Specific needs and considerations may apply; please read each scholarship description carefully.
  • The United Methodist Higher Education Foundation is a nonprofit foundation based in Nashville, Tennessee, that specifically works to provide financial support to United Methodist students attending United Methodist-related schools and universities.  Their programs include a matching scholarship program that individual congregations or conferences may partner with to increase their resources for students.
