The Education Committee also has a scholarship program for high school seniors in the State of Missouri who are planning to attend a college or university. This contest requires an essay on a topic relating to the Mayflower Pilgrims. The Scholarships presently offered include one-time awards of $1500, $1000, and $500, funded by member contributions and corporate matching grants. The Scholarship Application form is available as a down loadable PDF file through a link from the Main Page of the Missouri Mayflower Society website.
