  Local Pastor Course of Study Financial Assistance
Cohlmia Scholarship for Perkins COS Students

The Oklahoma Board of Ordained Ministry provides scholarships for the Course of Study. The current scholarship is $200 per course. Although the BOM recognizes this does not cover the students’ costs of the COS the BOM uses all the funds available to assist with the costs of COS.

On most COS registration forms there is a place for the Conference Local Pastor Registrar to sign. The student should have the District Superintendent sign the form, send it to the BOM Local Pastor Registrar for him/her to sign and the completed form will be sent back to the student. When the form is signed by the Local Pastor Registrar and it is confirmed there is a current District Committee on Ministry (dCOM) Action Report on file with the Local Pastor Registrar the Registrar will send the scholarship request to the BOM Treasurer. The scholarship funds will then be paid directly to the student.

If the COS course does not require the Local Pastor Registrar to sign the registration form the student must send the COS registration to the Local Pastor Registrar for the scholarship process to begin.

The Annual Conference does not pay for a grade of "F" or a class withdrawal. In those cases, the student must pay for the next course and pass the course before being eligible for financial aid once again.
