Ancient Free & Accepted Masons

Two types of scholarship are available: The Grand Lodge of Minnesota offers "Signature" scholarships of $20,000 for four years of college.  More information is available here:

Also, approximately ten $500.00 scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors of our local area public high schools - Fergus Falls, Underwood, Battle Lake, and Henning.  The sponsoring organizations are: Cornerstone Lodge Masons, York Rite Masons, Birak Shrine Club, the Fergus Falls Masonic Building Corporation, and Minnesota Masonic Charities.

These local scholarships will be presented to worthy students, regardless of race, color, or creed.  Ambition, leadership, and character as demonstrated by academic achievement (minimum 2.5 GPA), extra-curricular activities, and community involvement are the primary criteria for selection.   Preference may be given to relatives of Masons or if your family is experiencing a particular financial hardship.  If either is the case, you may elaborate in your "goals" statement.

Cornerstone Lodge No. 99
P.O. Box 267
Fergus Falls MN 56537
