The purpose of this email is to inform you about a scholarship opportunity for high school seniors. Please pass this information on to your students.
The Mensa Education and Research Foundation scholarship program is open now, and students from your school are eligible to apply.
Since your college-bound students are likely to be working on their essays now, it is probably a good time to inform them about this scholarship, as it is also based on writing an essay.
There are several general scholarships available at the national and regional levels, and in addition to that, Western New York Mensa has another $500 local scholarship that will go to a student from our chapter's area. (Our area includes the Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Erie and Niagara counties, and the western areas of Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming and Allegany counties.)
The application process is entirely electronic: all necessary information, as well as the application forms are available on the MERF website:www.mensafoundation.org/scholarships
The deadline for applications is January 15, 2018.
Please feel free to use the attached flyer to inform your students about this scholarship program. The flyer is also available as a PDF file at:http://wny.us.mensa.org/Scholarship2018.pdf
Thank you for helping us spread the word.
