The Hawaiian Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons Scholarship Program is dedicated to worthy High School seniors who wish to pursue a degree in the areas of Engineering, the Sciences, Hawaiian Studies, or Education - who may otherwise not be able to attend college. First and foremost, we look for a consistently good GPA throughout High School - with an eye towards the difficulty of the classes attended. Applicants will be asked to submit with their application, a written (or typed) essay which will enlighten the committee on the applicant's views and opinions on a selected topic or philosophy. Also requested will be recommendation letters from the applicant's mentors and role models. An applicant's (family) financial need will be judged by the submission of a (sanitized) IRS Form 1040 showing their household income. Hawaiian Lodge encourages awardees to maintain good study habits, and rewards steadfast follow-on applicants with continuing awards throughout their Baccalaureate studies. Hawaiian Lodge reserves the right to choose their awardees based on the above criteria, with GPA being important, the Essay being essential and financial need being a strong driver towards the Scholarship selection. Masonic Membership or Affiliation through family is noted by the committee.
1st Financial Bank USA wants to celebrate those who recognize the importance of pursuing educational and financial goals with the 1st Financial Bank USA Financial Goals Scholarship.
