Scholarship 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. 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 applicant’s 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.

Masons continue to use the simple tools of the ancient stonemasons — the square and compasses, the trowel, plumb and level — as symbols to teach their ideals. A Mason is oath-bound to build his life and character with the same care and precision that stonemasons used to construct the cathedrals and temples centuries ago.
Today, there are about three million Masons in the world, with the United States claiming about 1.6 million of the total membership. A survey that was conducted by the Masonic Service Association puts the charitable aspect of Freemasonry into perspective. That survey shows that American Masonic philanthropy is approximately $2.0 million per day.
