Making A Difference in Education
Grand Lodge Educational Assistance Program
The Grand Lodge of New York through its Trustees of the Masonic Hall and Home established a scholarship in 1996. The Education Assistance Committee of Grand Lodge administers this scholarship program for post high school level students. The effort is directed at the sons, daughters, grandsons and granddaughters of Master Masons in good standing, belonging to Lodges within the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the State of New York.
Awards totaling over $500,000 are made annually based upon academic achievement, community involvement and financial need.
Scholarships are awarded according to academic excellence and the students’ involvement in their communities. Selections are made in May and awarded between June and August. Award presentations to the recipients are made at central locations throughout New York State during these months.
