Masonic Scholarships

The Grand Ledge Masonic lodge was given a scholarship fund at the passing of one of our brothers several years ago.  This account accrues dividends and interest in the course of the year (we aim to never dip into our principle) and is then supplemented with other fund raising events (e.g. the Grand Ledge Winterfest Chili Cookoff). We are now able to generously give away scholarships to local, college-bound high school seniors.

In 2016, the two scholarships we’re giving away are as follows:
