Gifts to the Central Annual Scholarship Fund make an immediate impact on the lives of our students by providing them with the opportunity to earn a CMU education. Last fiscal year, CMU awarded over 13.1 million dollars in scholarships to our students. The Central Annual Scholarship Fund helps fill this need for our students.
“I came to Central Methodist to play soccer and earn a criminal justice degree. My world was rocked when I took a criminal justice introductory class and realized it wasn’t a good fit for me. Luckily, I have a great advisor who encouraged me to take my time choosing a major and to enroll in more introductory classes to learn about different fields. Introduction to Nursing was engaging and fun from the very beginning. The new Thogmorton Center for Allied Health provides a hands-on learning environment where I tend to learn at my best. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have already had at CMU and cannot thank our donors enough!” -Katie Bloodworth ’19
