Prince Hall Grand Lodge of West Virginia Establishes WVSU Foundation Scholarship Endowment

INSTITUTE, W.Va. -- The Prince Hall Grand Lodge of West Virginia made an investment in young people with a $10,000 check to the West Virginia State University Foundation.  The contribution establishes the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of WV Scholarship.

Most Worshipful Grandmaster Calvin Washington presented the check to West Virginia State University President Dr. Hazo W. Carter, Jr. Prince Hall Chairman of Education, Clarence Brown, stated that it is important for us to help our young people with a hand up to be the best that they can be.  He added that an education is more important today than ever before and gives students the specialized training they need to prepare for a job or career.

He also said that the cost of education is increasing rapidly.  That is why we know it is important to support our young people.

The scholarship which will be managed by the WVSU Foundation, will be available for full-time WVSU students with a GPA of 2.75 or above.  Priority will be given to those demonstrating the greatest financial need coupled with highest GPA.  The Prince Hall Education Committee will assist the scholarship committee in applicant selection.
