Masonic bursaries available until Feb. 1

Time is running out for students who wish to apply for a Masonic higher Education Bursary.

Masons recognized: Earl Giebelhaus

Time is running out for students who wish to apply for a Masonic higher Education Bursary.

The deadline for applications to be received is Feb. 1.

For the 13th consecutive year, Rimbey Masonic Lodge received recognition for the highest average per capita contributions to the Masonic Higher Education Bursary Fund for the Central District Lodges from the Grand Lodge of Alberta.

“Kitchener Lodge has been the recipient of this award since its beginning, something of which we are very proud,” said Earl Giebelhaus, acting master of Kitchener Lodge.

Giebelhaus said the bursary fund was started to provide assistance to students who wished to receive a higher education, but lacked the ever increasing funds to do so.

“A high proportion of the funds for these bursaries are generated from contributions from individual Masons,” he said.

Each year one hundred $2,000 bursaries are awarded to students who are attending post-secondary institutions in Alberta and the Northwest Territories. There are also two annual $7,000 bursaries under The Lauraine Douchet Masonic Bursary for Pharmacy and Medicine available.
