2015 New Hampshire Mayflower Society Memorial Scholarships

The deadline for applications will be February 15, 2015.

The scholarships are open to anyone who can make a personal appearance at the May 2015 scholarship luncheon to accept the award.  Please be aware that members and their family will have a preference for winning the award.

The 2014 New Hampshire Mayflower Society Memorial Scholarships are available to any college student (undergraduate or graduate student) or high school senior.  You don't need to be a member of the Mayflower Society, or a descendant of a Mayflower passenger to apply, but members and close relatives of members will receive preference (defined as members, junior members, siblings, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren).  Applicants with no affiliation to the New Hampshire Mayflower Society are invited to apply.  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, in New Hampshire.  It is expected that at least two to four scholarships of $500 to $1000 will be awarded in May 2014.

Applications and instructions are available at the website  and applications and all required paperwork is due strictly by February 15, 2014.  Or you may email Heather Rojo at for more information and further instructions.  The New Hampshire Mayflower Society can also be found on Facebook.

The requirement to attend the spring meeting may be waived at the discretion of the New Hampshire Mayflower Governor due to such issues as 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.

The General Society of Mayflower Descendants also gives an annual $5,000 scholarship to a junior member.  Please send your inquiries to
