Terry Kenny, Master of Lake Saskatoon Lodge #106, invites students and their caregivers to bring their lunch and join him for a special information session on the Masonic Higher Education Fund. The talk takes places at the Grande Prairie Museum in Muskoseepi Park as an enhancement to their newest exhibit, Freemasonry A History Hidden in Plain Sight.

The session is from 12 noon to 1 p.m. and is free to attend with coffee and tea provided. Guests are invited to explore the exhibit and galleries following the discussion.

Masonic Higher Education Fund

The Masonic Higher Education Bursary Fund began in 1957 to assist students struggling with the increasing rates of higher education. The bursaries aim to recognize and support excellence in education for the benefit of humanity.

Post secondary students in Alberta and the Northwest Territories are eligible to apply for a variety of bursaries including thirty $5,000 Provincial bursaries, eight $5,000 Peace River Regional District bursaries, and two $7000 Lauraine Douchet Masonic Bursaries for Pharmacy and Medicine students. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of two-year program and apply before February 1 for Fall intake.
