  • Scholarship Description
  • Delegates to the 62nd Supreme Council Meeting in August 1944 voted to establish an Educational Trust Fund by the raising of $1 million through a special per capita tax on the members of the Order. Scholarships provided from the income of this fund would become a living memorial to Knights who gave their lives for their country during World War II, or who became totally and permanently disabled through service-incurred injuries. Originally these scholarships included tuition, room, board, books, and fees.

    Educational Trust Scholarships are available to children of members in good standing who, while serving in the military forces of their country in a combat zone, specifically designated as such by the Board of Directors, are killed by hostile action or wounded by hostile action resulting within two years thereof in permanent and total disability. Applications must be filed within two years of the death or determination of total and permanent disability of the member. Scholarships may also be awarded to children of members in good standing who are full-time law enforcement officers or full-time firefighters who, while in the lawful performance of their duties, died as a result of criminal violence directed at them. Applications must be filed within two (2) years of the date of death of the member.
