Masonic Lodge Scholarship Review Team Information & Procedures
Washington Jurisdiction Lodges are invited (at no cost to the Lodge) to participate in the WA Masonic Charities Scholarship Program. These scholarships are in addition to scholarships offered by the local Lodge. To participate, interested Lodges simply need to "opt in" by completing the form. Once signed up, the members 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.
