Austin Lodge No. 12, A.F. & A.M., awards at least $15,000 each year in scholarships to worthy applicants from academic institutions who will be attending Texas institutions of higher education. The exact dollar amount of each scholarship will depend upon the size of investment income from the Scholarship Endowment Fund.
The scholarships are designed to assist individuals pursuing a post-secondary education at an accredited institution, which provides a two or four year college program. The scholarships may be used for any legitimate school related expense such as tuition, fees, and books. Applicants need not have a Masonic connection, nor do race, creed, religion, color, sex, or national origin have any bearing in the selection process. Recipients are selected after completing a comprehensive written application.
