published 1/9/2018

The Council of Bishops is offering scholarships for young adults (age 21-35) to attend the 2018 United Methodist Ecumenical and Interreligious Training (UMEIT:USA) and the National Workshop on Christian Unity (NWCU) this Spring.

UMEIT is the annual training in the United States for United Methodists engaged in ecumenical and inter-religious ministry through the church. The NWCU is an opportunity for Christians who care about ecumenical and inter-religious ministry to learn and network.

The NWCU and UMEIT occur parallel to each other once a year in a different area of the United States. The 2018 sessions will be in Silver Spring, Maryland, from April 16-19, 2018.

The Council of Bishops will offer up to six scholarships at $300 each to assist seminary students and other young adults (aged 21-35) who will be attending UMEIT and NWCU for the first time.

To receive a scholarship application, email Rev. Dr. Jean Hawxhurst, Ecumenical Staff Officer, The Council of Bishops, at jhawxhurst@umc-cob.org or click here to download the UMEIT Scholarship application.

The scholarship application is due to jhawxhurst@umc-cob.org no later than February 28, 2018.

Registration for the NWCU and UMEIT will open within the next month via nwcu.org.
