Program Guidelines & Priorities:
* Seeking graduating seniors with a record of volunteerism in the community in non-school sponsored activities and participation in extracurricular school activities.
* Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.0, and plan to attend a 2 or 4 year college located in Maine.
* Scholarship funds will be awarded to the student at Unity Lodge #3 I.O.O.F. 179 Ridgeland Ave. South Portland ME. Winners will be notified of the date and time. Checks will be made payable directly to the college and not to the student. It will be the student’s responsibility to submit the check to the University. The winner must supply Unity Lodge #3 with their student ID number and college information.
* Applicants must have the endorsement of their Guidance Counselor on their application attesting they are a qualified fit for this scholarship program. Unity Lodge #3 strongly suggests that each high school present this opportunity to the strongest applicants that match this program’s guidelines. Application deadline is June 1and must be postmarked no later the midnight that day. Late applications are not accepted. Think ahead and get ready for next year. Remember a good essay about the Odd Fellows will only help you during the review process.
Now is the time to start thinking about next year.
