Since 2008, Holman United Methodist Church (Los Angeles, CA) has been providing a female student at Africa University (Mutare, Zimbabwe) with a full four-year academic scholarship.

The cost?  $5,700 (U.S.) per year, which includes tuition, books, room and board.

The scholarship was initiated through the leadership of Rev. Henry Masters, Africa University Board Member and Senior Pastor of Holman United Methodist Church at the time, who was aware of the need.  Members of Holman UMC then formed a ministry to provide the scholarship to a female student in particular because their research indicated that female students have more difficulty accessing higher education opportunities.
