About

The Masonic Higher Education Bursary Fund recognizes, promotes and supports excellence in education for the benefit of humanity.

 

The Masonic Higher Education Bursary Fund was instituted by the Grand Lodge of Alberta, A.F. & A.M. at its Annual Communication in June of 1957. The intent was and is to provide assistance to those students wishing to receive a higher education but lacking the ever increasing funds to do so.

Currently, each year 100 Bursaries in the amount of $2000.00 are awarded to students at the post secondary level of Education in Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

The Masonic Higher Education Bursary Fund obtains its funding through donations from individual Freemasons, Masonic Clubs and Concordant Bodies, Memorial Donations and Bequests placed in Wills. The Fund is a Registered Charitable Fund and receipts for Income Tax purposes are issued. The day to day operating expenses of the fund are paid by the Grand Lodge of Alberta. No expenses are taken from the donations, memorials or bequests directed to the Fund.

Bursaries are awarded on a basis of need and proven scholastic ability. The applications deadline is February 1st. annually. Our bursary application forms and further information are available under the heading APPLY.

In conjunction with the MHEBF, The Lauraine Douchet Masonic Bursary for Pharmacy and Medicine, is available. This bursary is for students who are accepted in a four year Pharmacy degree program at an accredited institution in Alberta or for students who are accepted in a three or four year Medical Doctor, MD, degree program at an accredited institution in Alberta.
