World Communion Sunday
funds Ethnic Scholarships
for international students?

Ethnic in-Service Training Program funds are designated for the recruitment, training, and retention of ethnic United Methodist persons, both male and female, in leadership positions in every level of the church and its ministry. Half of the offering collected on World Communion Sunday provides scholarships for international and U.S. racial- and ethnic-minority graduate students. Thirty-five percent of the receipts support ethnic scholarships for undergraduate students, and 15% funds Ethnic In-Service Training Program scholarships for racial- and ethnic-minority persons seeking second careers in church-related vocations.

ABOUT WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY (WCS)


United Methodist churches observe World Communion Sunday on the first Sunday in October. The observance focuses the attention of United Methodists on the universal and inclusive nature of the church. Offerings collected in United Methodist churches on World Communion Sunday are used to fund scholarships for young scholars and seminarians. Donations equip racial and ethnic-minority students in the United States and international students to transform the church and communities. Half of the proceeds from the offering is for World Communion Sunday Scholars administered by the General Board of Global Ministries. The remaining half is to be used for the Ethnic Scholarship Program and the Ethnic In-Service Training Program, which are administered by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
