In 2005, the Society of Mayflower Descendants in Michigan board established a scholarship program to assist junior members and general members under the age of 26 who are planning to attend an accredited two- or four-year higher education program. 

The objective of the program is to increase the interest and participation of the Society's Junior Members.  The amounts of the scholarships will be $2000, $1000, and $500. The deadline for the applications will be May 1 of each year. Applications may include, but are not limited to essays, pamphlets, posters, flag designs, oral presentations, or other educational endeavors. The projects must be historically accurate. The program is open to Michigan Junior Members, under the age of 26 years at the May 1 deadline and who have been accepted to a 2-4 year higher education program.
