Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Association of Western Pennsylvania
2017 Scholarship Award

(PLEASE NOTE: This Scholarship Award is for Western Lodges only.)

The Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Association of Western Pennsylvania will continue offering $3000 scholarship awards to a maximum of four (4) students who fulfill the specific requirements of the Award. This will be the 12th consecutive year of the Award since its inauguration back in 2006. Award committee chairman, Robert Grant, wants to remind those considering applying or those considering potential applicants, of three requirements in particular:

1. The applicant or a living family relative must be a member of the I.O.O.F or Rebekahs of Western Pennsylvania.
2. The applicant must be a full-time student majoring in one of the three eligible areas: music, education or a health-related field.
3. The applicant must have also completed at least one year of full time college.

As in previous years, a copy of the “Rules” and an “Award Application” will be sent to all the lodges representing the Western District in mid/late-May. The 2017 Awards Committee requests that all lodge secretaries and scribes relay the information to their respective membership and make copies as necessary for distribution. Information regarding the 2017 Scholarship may also be found on our website: The deadline date for submitting applications will be July 31, 2017. The committee also asks that the public be made aware of our Award by informing schools, colleges, newspapers, churches, etc. in your respective areas. Your cooperation and assistance in relaying this information will be very much appreciated. Hopefully, we will once again be honored in announcing the Awards to four qualified and worthy recipients this coming October.

The Awards, of course are being made to not only defray some of the cost associated with higher education, but also to help increase public awareness of the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs, and in turn, hopefully receive petitions for membership to promote our great Order.
