Mercer Island Freemasons taking scholarship applications

Applications for the Mercer Island Freemasons scholarship program are now available to juniors and seniors in the MIHS Counseling Center. For more than 35 years, the Freemasons have invested in the success of outstanding MIHS students. By including juniors, the program helps students get a head start on the college application process.

The Freemasons award an achievement certificate to the outstanding junior boy and girl, and a $1,000 grant to the outstanding senior boy and girl. Winners at the Mercer Island Lodge are then forwarded to the Grand Lodge of Washington, where the winning juniors are eligible for a $1,000 grant and the winning seniors are eligible for an additional $1,000 grant.

Applications must be completed and returned to the Counseling Center by Feb. 11. All applicants and their families are invited to a pizza dinner and awards ceremony on March 7.

For more information, contact John Gebhart at or call (206) 354-7508.
