Dreamers now eligible for United Methodist college loans

Dreamers now eligible for United Methodist college loans


GBHEM loan applications available now with expanded categories for eligibility


The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry opened applications for spring and summer loans on December 11, 2014 and will accept loan applications until May 5, 2015. The spring and summer loans are for school enrollment between January 1, 2015 and May 31, 2015. Applications are available at www.gbhem.org/loanapplication.

The GBHEM board has recently voted to expand the eligibility criteria which will enable Dreamer students to apply for a loan or scholarship from GBHEM under the current Domestic Applicant guidelines. Dreamers are young adults who were unauthorized immigrants brought into the country as children.   

We are adjusting the online application questions regarding citizenship status so that we are able to identify the Dreamers who apply this year.  The scholarship application will be open January 5 at www.gbhem.org/scholarshipapplication.

Please share this news and the application links with anyone you may know needing assistance for the next school year.
