The Mensa Education & Research Foundation International Scholarship Program is intended to provide scholarships for foreign students enrolled at colleges or universities in the United States. The program follows, in broad terms, the outline of the scholarship program already in place in the United States. The scholarship process begins during the first week of September and ends with the scholarship application deadline of Jan. 15.
The U.S. scholarship program is very large in the geographic area it covers (usually about 75 percent of the country), the number of applications (4,000 to 6,000 in recent years), and the amount of money available for awards (nearly $70,000 last year). The Foundation’s U.S. scholarship program is operated by approximately 400 volunteers around the country with support by the Foundation Director and American Mensa’s office staff. Applicants need not be Mensa members.
Eligibility is limited to Mensa members (except American Mensa) or their children age 25 or younger. An application form with more information can be downloaded below.
