The Mensa Foundation is celebrating 50 years of unleashing intelligence for the benefit of humanity. Its scholarship program has benefitted learners of all ages. Grants and awards have helped recognize and advance important research while promoting pragmatic solutions. And gifted youth benefit from special programming.
It started with a polymath and an idea — as it often does in Mensa. Then, over five decades, the Mensa Foundation grew a booming scholarship program, extended support for research into intelligence, provided gifted youth special programming, and much more to unleash intelligence for the benefit of humanity.
