Mensa Scholarships

Local Mensa groups and the Mensa Education & Research Foundation (MERF) award college scholarships  based on essay competition. Applicants need not be Mensa members. Scholarships are based solely on meeting the application form requirements and the quality of the essay. Essays are judged by a panel of Mensa members.

MERF is a non-profit organization committed to the pursuit of excellence in the areas of intelligence. Click HERE for more info about MERF scholarships.

ECOM sponsors its own college scholarship award each year. Residents and students in the ECOM 14-county area (see above) are eligible to apply. For further details about the Karl J. Roden Memorial Scholarship see the Scholarships entry on the Main Menu. A tax-deductible fund has been created at the Akron Community Foundation in support of this scholarship. You may donate any time, or set up a recurring donation. Donate at www.akroncf.org/give/RodenScholarshipFund.

ECOM's annual Fall scholarship fund-raiser is great fun and reputed to be one of the best in the country. There's also a year-round on-line book sale (click on the Products tab) to support the scholarship.
