The Commission on the Central Conferences Theological Education Fund of the United Methodist Church meets online on February 15-17, 2021, bringing together representatives from Africa, Asia (the Philippines), and Europe who evaluated more than 150 proposals submitted to the CCTEF. Theological institutions affiliated to the United Methodist Church and located in countries other than the United States are eligible to apply for resources to be used for scholarships, innovative curricula, and other educational projects which are aligned with the CCTEF purposes. Yearly, hundreds of theological institutions and committees working on theological education submit their projects, which are vetted by this international commission. Many of institutions affiliated to IAMSCU are eligible to apply and have been recipients of these resources. The CCTEF was established in 2012, building on earlier initiatives of the United Methodist Church, which defined the investment on theological education as a priority. The CCTEF is administered by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) of the United Methodist Church.
