Scholarship Competition
College? Graduate School?

Do you know someone who plans to go to college next fall? Whether they're headed to an Ivy League University or a community college, a bit of extra money always helps.

The Mensa scholarship contest is easy to enter. Applicants write essays on a subject dear to their hearts: their own educational and career goals. Essays are submitted electronically. The only requirement is the intent to pursue a degree, from associate on up, at an accredited college or university during the 2015-2016 school year.

Our local group offers several scholarships, and some of our applicants receive money from the Mensa Education and Research Foundation. Available scholarships range from $300.00 to $1,000.00. Mensa affiliation is not required for the general competition, but there is an additional contest exclusively for Mensans or their IRS dependents. The submission deadline for both contests is January 15, 2015, 11:59 CST. Local and higher level judging will take place over the following months. Scholarships will be awarded in July 2015.
