Grand Lodge of Iowa Announces 2011 Scholarship Programs

Monday, October 25, 2010

The Grand Lodge of Iowa, A.F. & A.M. is pleased to announce two scholarship programs are now available for 2011 graduating seniors from Iowa's Public High Schools. Information is available from School Guidance Counselors and on the Grand Lodge of Iowa's website at www.gl-iowa.org.

One scholarship program is for graduating seniors from Iowa Public High Schools who will graduate in 2011 and plan to study in an academic field. Since the program's inception in 1970, the Grand Lodge of Iowa has awarded more than $2.4 million in scholarships to 1,865 graduating seniors from Iowa Public High Schools all across the state. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2011.

The second scholarship program is the "Mark Earl and Esther Ruth Spencer Technical Scholarship" or MCEC Technical Scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded to graduating Iowa High School seniors planning to enroll in a mechanical or trade course of study at an accredited Iowa Community College. This is the third year for this scholarship. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2011.

Each year, Iowa Masons are pleased to be able to award scholarships based on a student's academic performance, community activities, leadership, and financial need from endowment funds established to recognize the accomplishments of young Iowans and to promote the education of our future leaders.

Masonry, known to be the world's oldest fraternity, is an organization dedicated to building character among its members who are men 18 years old and older.
