For information on the National GSMD Scholarships for Seniors in High School who are Mayflower Descendants visit: www.themayflowersociety.org, click on “news & events” and the menu will show you “scholarships” and information on their $6,000, $4,000, $3,000 and $2,000 scholarships awarded yearly. Their deadline is March 1 and their requirements are a little more vigorous than Oregon’s. Please make sure you note them carefully.
At least four Family Societies (in association with the National Society of Mayflower Descendants) also award yearly scholarships to graduating high school seniors and/or current college students. These Societies are:
The Thomas Rogers Society (contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Fuller Society (contact email@example.com)
The Howland Society (contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Soule Kindred Society (contact email@example.com)
If you are a descendant of Thomas or Joseph Rogers, Edward or Samuel Fuller, John Holland or George Soule you are eligible for their scholarship program.
