William Penn Fraternal Association Scholarship Foundation, Inc

scholarOur Association and our nation have no more valuable resource than our children. The more carefully we nurture our children, the better the chances for a bright future for all of us. It is with this thought that in 1969, our Association founded the “William Penn Fraternal Association Scholarship Foundation, Inc”. For almost 50 years, the Foundation has assisted thousands of deserving college-age members further their education, prepare for worthwhile careers, broaden their understanding, and ultimately, become better members and citizens.

The Foundation continues to widen its scope and increase the level of its assistance to our young members. All scholarship recipients are selected based on their academic record and membership status. Selections are made by the Grant Awards Committee which also serves as the Executive Committee of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Such support for our young people would be impossible if not for the generosity of our members and branches. Contributions through premium payments, fraternal gatherings and memorial donations continue to serve as a vital source of revenue for the Foundation.

As the cost of attaining a higher education continues to escalate, so too does the need for programs like our Scholarship Foundation. Meeting the challenges and needs of modern educational economics will require great effort by all of our members. But, with their help, we can continue this worthwhile project and further increase its impact and goal.
