The 2021 Scholarship Application Process is now open! The deadline to apply to the 2021 Scholarship Program is March 15, 2021.
The General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) Scholarship Program is offering scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are Mayflower descendants and will be attending a four-year college or university or two-year community college.
In the spirit of the Mayflower settlers seeking to better themselves by moving to a new and uncharted world, special consideration will be given to applicants who have demonstrated a commitment to bettering themselves.
Application Deadline: The deadline for the 2021 GSMD Scholarship Program is March 15, 2021.
For an applicant to be considered for a Mayflower Scholarship, the Application Form must include a valid GSMD membership number for either the applicant or for a parent, grandparent, or great grandparent of the applicant. Additionally, the Member Society membership number must also be included.
If any documentation needs to be submitted to GSMD to obtain a current GSMD membership number, applicants should begin work as early as possible with the Mayflower Historian in their state of residence to complete this process. Also, you will be required to list your Mayflower Ancestor(s) from the ship.
Each scholarship recipient must be a graduating senior; must provide the information requested for the application; and must enter a four-year college or university or two-year community college.
Because of COVID -19, most Colleges and Universities are not requiring SAT or ACT scores. 2021 GSMD Scholarship applicants will NOT be required to submit SAT nor ACT scores. However, Applicants are encouraged to add "Letters of Recommendation" from teachers or people in the community.
