Grand Lodge of Iowa Masonic Scholarship Program

Description

The Grand Lodge of Iowa, A.F. & A.M., located at 813 First Avenue SE, Cedar Rapids, will be awarding up to sixty scholarships to high school seniors who will graduate this academic year from a public high school within the state of Iowa. The exact dollar amount of each scholarship will depend upon the size of investment income from the Scholarship Endowment Fund. The scholarships are designed to assist graduating seniors in pursuing a post-secondary education in any state at an accredited institution which provides a two- or four-year college program. The scholarships may be used for any bona fide school related expense such as tuition, fees, and books. Applicants need not have a Masonic connection, nor do race, creed, religion, color, sex, or national origin have any bearing in the selection process. Recipients are selected after completing a comprehensive written application and an in-depth personal interview. A broad-based criterion is used in the selection process. The principal criterion is service to school and community with special emphasis upon leadership roles in these areas. The Grand Lodge of Iowa is looking for those students who exhibit the greatest potential to be not only of service to their communities in the future but also leaders in these communities. An applicantÔÇÖs academic record, communication skills, and need for financial assistance are also carefully considered as is an evaluation of the applicant by a school official. The organization, appearance, and completeness of the application are also factors considered by the selection committee. From all the applications received, the Scholarship Selection Committee will select a number of finalists who will be asked to appear before the committee for a personal interview. These interviews will be conducted via Zoom Video Conferencing. Upon completion of the interviews, the committee will then select those who will receive scholarships. Public high school seniors who feel they meet the criteria for eligibility and selection are invited to submit applications. These applications may be obtained through the guidance department of any public high school and must be postmarked no later than February 1, 2021 for the application and all supporting materials in order to be considered by the committee. Additional pages of narrative or supporting documentation can be added to any section. This may include copies of newspaper clippings, photos, letters of recommendation from people within your school and/or community, and other materials which will give the Committee a better insight about you, your school, and your community activities. Please make copies. Do not submit materials you expect to be returned. Should be submitted through mail.
