United Methodist Youth Fellowship Leadership Scholars have provided significant leadership in local church, district, and conference youth ministries of the United Methodist Church and demonstrate outstanding potential for Christian leadership on the Hendrix campus. Each applicant must be a member of a United Methodist church and provide notable leadership roles within the church and youth group. Those involved in leadership at the district, conference, jurisdictional, and national levels are strongly encouraged to apply.
Students who qualify for the scholarship, but whose financial needs are met by other scholarships or sources, are still encouraged to apply for the scholarship program. Students who do not receive funds can still participate in the program.
Renewal of the scholarship for up to three additional years is dependant on the successful completion of a set program that includes participation in retreats, monthly group meetings, and individual projects. The program expectations will be outlined in the letter awarding the scholarship.
