The Returned Missionary Scholarship (RMS) is for recently returned missionaries who want to apply the experiences, skills, and habits they’ve developed in the next phase of their lives.
The RMS goal is to assist recipients with education funding to help them move forward with their life’s plan enabling them to succeed in their education, career, or other righteous pursuit so they can become self-reliant and help fill a local need.
RMS is available in most Pacific countries, except Australia, New Zealand, and Tahiti.
We encourage all returned missionaries who meet the following criteria to apply.
- Have returned home from your mission within the last 12 months
- Hold a current temple recommend
- Completed both “Education for Better Work” and “My Foundation” self-reliance courses
- Have a strong desire to learn
