Participants in the 2021 United Methodist Church Scout (UMC) Conference at Philmont have two, and perhaps three, opportunities to earn scholarships to help pay for their course.   Scholarships are available through the GCUMM’s Center for Scouting Ministry, PTC (Philmont Training Center) and through a few UMC Conferences.   You will have the opportunity to submit applications to each organization separately.  

Key elements of each program are highlighted below.  You can apply for the $200 UMC scholarship and $225 PTC scholarship at the same time, which together will cover most all of the $550 PTC fee.  A few UMC Conferences offer full or partial scholarships as well.  A list of those Conferences and their contacts are provided below for you to contact to ask about their application process.
