The Young Alumni Board Missions Fund
The YAB Missions Fund has been made possible by the Young Alumni Board, and is intended to support currently enrolled UMHB students attending UMHB-sponsored mission trips or GO Now mission trips.
This missions fund was created to encourage and provide opportunities for UMHB students to experience missions while attending UMHB, and to assist in reducing the overall cost of these trips. These mission funds are made possible through gifts of alumni and friends of the university who believe in the work done through student missions.
The YAB Missions Fund will be awarded by the Young Alumni Board based on the number of applicants and available funds.
