The Valley of Springfield awarded more than $54,000.00 in scholarship's from the Scottish Rite along with an additional $12,000.00 on behalf of the Grand Lodge of Illinois. These scholarships help support 47 students - 10 of which are new recipients and the others are renewals.


This year for the first time, Valley Representatives participated in award ceremonies and events in the high schools of our new scholarship winnners. Valley members presenting the awards also told the audience about other Scottish Rite charities.
