Mensa scholarship essay contest


The Wyoming Mountain Mensa chapter of American Mensa has scholarships available for students living in Wyoming. The scholarships for the 2018 competition, ranging in value from $500-$1,000, are awarded by the Mensa Education & Research Foundation scholarship program.

All scholarship awards are based on a 550-word essay submitted online by the applicant, which describes the applicant’s career, vocational, or academic goal toward which the scholarship is to provide aid. Entries will be judged and awarded at three levels: local, regional, and national.

The only eligibility requirements are that the applicant will be enrolled in a degree program in an accredited American institution of post-secondary education in the 2018-2019 academic year, and that the applicant is a citizen or a permanent resident of the United States. The general awards are unrestricted as to age, race, gender, level of post-secondary education, or financial need. The applicant need not be a member of Mensa nor qualified for Mensa.

The deadline for all entries is January 15, 2018. For further information, contest rules, or to submit your essay, please go online at

The Mensa Education and Research Foundation is a philanthropic, non-profit, tax-exempt organization funded by gifts from members of American Mensa and other donors. American Mensa is an organization open to anyone who scores in the top two percent on an accepted, standardized intelligence test.
