Abbott Scholarship Picture

Abbott Scholarships

In 1922, a college scholarship program was inaugurated with an initial appropriation from Supreme Council funds. In 1932, Leon M. Abbott bequeathed additional funds to establish an Education and Charity Fund. The first Abbott scholarship was awarded in 1951. For many years, the scholarships were presented to journalism students at selected universities throughout the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. In 1984, it was voted to expand the scholarship program by awarding grants to children of Scottish Rite members and to young people active in the youth groups affiliated with the Masonic fraternity. In 2013, Scottish Rite Masons were included. In 1985-86, the first academic year, funds were allocated for 68 scholarships.
