How You Can Help
The scholarship program hopes to perpetuate itself and expand its scope in future years through donations to supplement the annual allocations that it receives from Grand Parlor. Those who wish to contribute may send checks to “NSGW Scholarship Fund,” directed to the Grand Secretary’s Office at the address above.
Other Scholarship Opportunities
In addition to the Grand Parlor’s scholarship program, a number of parlors provide scholarship programs on their own (among them Sonoma 111, Nicasio 183, Arrowhead 110, Ramona 109, Los Banos 206 and Fairfax 307).
Most of these programs, like the statewide one, are directed toward the offspring and relatives of Native Son members, but some are offered to students in the community at large. For details on a particular parlor’s program, an inquirer should be made to that parlor directly.
