The Foundation's college scholarship program bases its awards totally on essays written by the applicants. Consideration is not given to grades, academic program or financial need.

There are two requirements for applicants:

  • The applicant must be enrolled in a degree program in an accredited U.S. institution of higher learning during the academic year following the application date.
  • The applicant must submit an application and essay explaining his or her career, academic and/or vocational goals.

Essays are judged locally, regionally, and finally  nationally.  Each applicant is allowed to win only one Mensa scholarship; therefore, the winners are identified beginning with the highest amounts. The next highest scores receive awards of the next amounts, and so on until all the winners are identified from the judges' scores.
