Masonic Lodge Scholarship Review Team Information & Procedures

Washington Jurisdiction Lodges are invited (at no cost to them) to participate in the WA Masonic Charities-Grand Lodge Scholarship Program. To participate, interested Lodges simply need to "opt in" by completing the form below. Once included, they will assist in promoting the scholarships and reviewing local applications. This is a great way for Lodges to help, even if they do not have their own scholarship program.

1. Online applications open for students on September 19, 2016.

2. Participating Lodges may circulate scholarship program information to school career and counseling offices between September 30, 2016 and February 24, 2017.

3. Online applications close to students on February 24, 2017.

5. Scholarship teams review applications between February 28th and March 12, 2017.

7. The District Deputy will then select his top candidates and forwarded to WA Masonic Charities (monica@wa-masoniccharities.org) for Scholarship Committee final review and selection by April 19, 2017.

8. The WA Masonic Charities Scholarship Committee Chairman will inform the Lodge Scholarship Team, and District Deputy of the results.

9. Lodge informs WA Masonic Charities of the scheduled date/time of presentation/sannouncements well enough in advance that members of the committee and/or staff can be present if available.
