Wesley Announces New Rising Generation Ministry Awards
Tuition-Free Degrees for 10 Award Recipients
Wesley Theological Seminary supports the Rising Generation with 10 new 100% Tuition Merit Scholarships
The recent special session of the United Methodist General Conference in St. Louis left many people discouraged and uncertain of the future of The United Methodist Church.
Wesley Theological Seminary, committed to preparing leaders to model a prophetic voice in the public square, found a potent message of hope in the Young Peoples’ Statement. Overnight, more than 15,500 young people signed the statement, calling for unity amidst the church's diversity.They represent a rising generation committed to strengthening both personal and social holiness in our local communities and in our broad church.
In keeping with that call for a future that represents God’s preference for a diverse and inclusive United Methodist Church, Wesley Theological Seminary announces 10 new full-tuition scholarships to reiterate our support for those still discovering where God will be calling them at this time – and helping those called to stay the course.

- Alumni of Wesley Theological Seminary
- Directors of service organizations such as Epworth League, Project Transformation, Carolina Cross Connections, Sierra Service Project, or Appalachian Service Project
- Young Adult Missions such as Global Mission Fellows (GBGM/UMC)
