MOST WORSHIPFUL PRINCE HALL GRAND LODGE OF NEW MEXICO
HISTORY OF THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
In June 1992 The Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Masons and the Order of Eastern Stars of New Mexico changed their scholarship program from awarding a number of small scholarships (token gifts) to committing to one student at a time for four years. To date five students have completed the Masonic Scholarship Plan; one at Brown University, RI, one at Penn State, PA, one at the University of New Mexico and one at New Mexico State. Two years were completed at Southwest Missouri State University. A sixth student is presently attending Georgetown University Washington D.C. The Prince Hall Masonic Family Scholarship Foundation is excited about the success of the scholarship program as they will now have two students in universities at the same time. They plan to continue to offer a quality educational opportunity to young persons in the community of New Mexico.
Their long-range vision for education in New Mexico is to be able to graduate a student every-two-years, currently its every-four-years. The Scholarship Foundation feels through education they can cultivate a new culture in our youth. The program issued its first scholarship in June 1993 and was incorporated in June 2000. The foundation has executed over $68,000.00 in scholarships. Education is the Grand Lodge and Grand Chapters’ largest community project. The total Masonic population in the state New Mexico is approximately 300 men and women. The Grand Lodge and Grand Chapter feel that all must be willing to sacrifice much, if we plan to continue being a great people. Education is vital to the success of our youth and the future of our great nation.

We provide a four-year scholarship plan. The scholarship foundation will pay tuition, laboratory fees, and books for four years.
Approximately ten years ago we changed our scholarship program from awarding a number of small scholarships (token gifts) to committing to one student at a time for four years. To date two students have completed our four-year scholarship program; one at Brown University, RI and one at Penn State, PA. We are excited about the success of our program and with your help we will continue to grow and be able to offer an education opportunity to more than one student at a time, every four years.
We look forward to you participating in this most important project. Just $100.00 per year, for four years, can be your personal scholarship for a deserving young person. However, what ever the amount your gift, its greatly appreciated. Education is vital to the success of our young people and the future of our communities. We thank you for investing in the future.
