Soule Kindred in America has historically supported an annual scholarship, the Soule Kindred Scholarship. The Soule Kindred Board of Directors has approved two 2024 scholarships awards of $1,620 each. 

The scholarship is restricted to those who will be entering their first or second year in college and who have a demonstrated lineage from Mayflower passenger George Soule.

The scholarship competition will be judged primarily on each candidate’s response to an essay question which requires him/her to show a reasonable understanding of and personal reflection on his/her Pilgrim heritage. The essay question for a given year is developed by the Scholarship Committee and a different question is utilized each year. High school grades and letters of support are utilized to decide among applicants with equally impressive essay responses.

All applications with supporting material must be received by the Scholarship Committee by July 1, 2024. The announcement of the award will be made after September 1, 2024, and the actual monetary award will be made after the Scholarship Committee has received the academic transcript of the winner's successful completion of his/her school semester.

If no application is considered sufficiently meritorious to justify awarding of the scholarship, then none will be awarded for that year.
