Leaon M. Abbott Scholarship Fund

Charity through financial support

Seeking A Higher Education

One of Scottish Rite Freemasonry’s fundamental principles is the journey toward further light. That is why the Scottish Rite, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction has long been committed to fostering the value of education. The Abbott Scholarships began with a portion of the legacy of the late Leon M. Abbott, 33°, Sovereign Grand Commander from 1921-1932. Each year, more than 300 scholarships are awarded to eligible and deserving students attending accredited colleges, universities, and specialty schools.

The Abbott Scholarship Program provides financial support for the continuing undergraduate and graduate education of Scottish Rite Masons, young men and women from Scottish Rite families, and Masonic-related youth groups.
