2016 New Hampshire Mayflower Scholarship!

The deadline for applications to the 2016 New Hampshire Memorial Mayflower Scholarship is February 15, 2016.   You don’t need to be a member of the Mayflower Society, but members and close relatives of members will receive preference.  It is open to all students, from high school seniors through undergraduate and graduate students.

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, during May 2016 in New Hampshire.  It is expected that at least two to four scholarships of $500 to $1000 will be awarded.

Applications and instructions are available at the links below. 

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

  1. As a distant descendant of William Munroe, I am proud to have seen the Munroe Tavern a couple of times. (I live in Atlanta.) When I saw it again in 2012, I was surprised at the remodeling. I am saddened that now the Red Coats are being honored there, instead of the family that helped fight the battle of Lexington and start the Revolutionary War. Why?? Please do help the museum honor this family home with the express intent of James Munroe's Will from 1911. Thanks!

    1. Thanks B.J. for your comment about the Munroe Tavern. Would you like to post this comment on yesterday's post about the renovations?
