Win a Mayflower Scholarship!
The 2010 New Hampshire Mayflower Society Memorial Scholarships are available to any college student (undergraduate or graduate) or high school senior. You don’t need to be a member of the Mayflower Society, but members and relatives of members will receive preference.
This is one of the few Mayflower scholarships in the USA awarded to non-members. Applicants must be able to attend the award ceremony, in person, on May 8th, 2010 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It is expected that at least two to four scholarships of $500 to $1000 will be awarded in May 2010.
Applications and Instructions are available at the website www.nhmayflower.org , and applications and all required paperwork is due strictly before March 31, 2010. They may be mailed to:
NH Mayflower Scholarship Committee Chair
71 Old Nashua Road, Apt. 45
Londonderry, NH 03053
Or you may email Heather Rojo at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and further instructions. The New Hampshire Mayflower Society may also be found on Facebook.
Please remember that first consideration is given to members and immediate family members of the NH Mayflower Society (defined as members, junior members, siblings, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren). Applicants with no affiliation to the NH Mayflower Society are also invited to apply. The requirement to attend the spring meeting may be waived at the discretion of the NH Mayflower Governor due to such issues as travel distance, illness, or death in the family. Should the recipient receive a waiver from the Governor due to a hardship, a letter from the recipient to the Society must be submitted to be read at the meeting, as well as a photograph of the recipient for display. In such cases, parents or relatives may attend the award ceremony to accept the award on the recipient’s behalf.
