2019 Scholarships Program

The Minnesota Masonic Charities Scholarships Program sets the national standard for supporting educational achievement and excellence. The Program serves as a trusted resource for Minnesotans seeking academic growth and a bright future.

We fortify the foundation of Minnesota society through seven distinct scholarship awards that are unique in three ways:

1.) MMC Scholarships are renewable, providing financial stability throughout the recipient’s academic career;
2.) Minnesota Masonic Charities Scholarships are inclusive, providing for a broad range of academic ability. They are not limited by the geographic location of a school or a recipient’s chosen major;
3.) MMC Scholarships are relevant, recognizing that there are many educational paths that lead to success.

Applications for the 2019 Scholarships Program will be accepted beginning December 1, 2018. Interested applicants should return to this web page to link to our online application process and download instructions. DEADLINE = February 15, 2019.
