United Methodist Leadership Scholars screen shotThe United Methodist Leadership Scholars (UMLS) web sites are designed promote the UMLS scholarship and to facilitate the process for United Methodist churches in the Southeastern Jurisdiction to supply names of high school students for the United Methodist Leadership Scholars program.

The UMLS Information site describes the scholarship, the application process, and displays the participating United Methodist-related institutions in the Southeastern Jurisdiction on a map with a link to each school's web site.

The UMLS Student Registration site enables participating churches to log in and enter, revise, and extract data from the database.

The UMLS program is a joint project of the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation, the United Methodist General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, the Southeastern Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church, and United Methodist colleges in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
