Earnings from several funds established in their donor's name provide a limited number of endowed scholarships.
In accepting these gifts, the Order's Board of Directors voted to administer endowed scholarships in conformance with the rules of the Fourth Degree Pro Deo and Pro Patria scholarship program, subject to the donors' wishes.
By submitting a completed Fourth Degree Pro Deo and Pro Patria Scholarship application with required supporting documents, an applicant may instead be considered for an endowed scholarship wherein eligibility, application deadline and scholarship amount are generally the same.
