At last night’s State Meeting, Bro. K. Bray III, PM, Representative to the Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation spoke about the PMYF scholarship process.
Please note: Some things have changed, and the process involves a few steps. These are outlined in the following document: 2023 Resource Guide
According to the website, there are some basic instructions for the application process.
The following are the basic instructions for the PMYF Scholarship Application:
You must use the current year’s official application. Changes are sometimes made in the information required. Applications from previous years will NOT be considered. Applications must be post marked by March 15 of the current year.
You may obtain the current application on our website at http://www.pmyf.org. Click on the “Scholarships” button on the drop down menu. If you cannot access this application, you may request one from our office.
We STRONGLY prefer that you type your application. Both a blank printable form and a fill-in form are available on our website. Although you may type and print your application on our web based form, applications cannot be submitted on line. You’ll have to print and mail your completed application and supporting materials to us.
The ON-LINE FILL-IN APPLICATION:
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open and fill-in the form. Version 5.0 or higher is recommended.
You will be able to type and print your application with the free version of Acrobat, but you will NOT be able to save your work, unless you are running the full commercial version.
We recommend that you save the blank form onto your computer, print a blank copy for a “rough draft” and then either type it and print it in one sitting, or type in and print one page or section at a time. Remember that each time you close the .pdf form, you will lose all the information you typed into it.
Complete all information. Where needed, mark items as “Not applicable” rather than leaving blanks.
Be sure to include all required attachments. Use the checklist provided with the application. We will not consider incomplete applications.
Check your work, including spelling and grammar. The neatness and correctness of your work will be considered.
Please see the Online Application
As always, the most current and up to date information can be found on the PA Masonic Youth Foundation’s website: https://pmyf.org/scholarship/
Per the PMYF website: “AWARDS ARE NOT GUARANTEED: Only the opportunity for a fair appraisal of the information provided to our committee. These scholarship, grant, and loan opportunities are for Masons, their siblings, children, grandchildren, and members of the Masonic related youth groups in Pennsylvania.”
