Scholarships

A separate non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation, The Thomas Munson Foundation Scholarship Fund, Inc., termed “The Fund,” maintains a scholarship endowment which is sustained by tax-exempt contributions from members and non-members, interest on endowment investments, and willed bequests.  Members of the Thomas Munson Foundation are also members of The Fund. Each year two or more scholarships are awarded to selected applicants who meet the criteria, which include tracing their ancestry to Thomas Munson or any of the other signatories to the Fundamental Agreement at New Haven, Connecticut, dated 1639. The scholarship can be used to assist in their college education or vocational schooling.
