Our World of Youth Scholarship
The purpose of this program is to encourage and promote academic scholarships for the young women and young men in our Fraternal Youth Organizations as well as the members of the Order of the Eastern Star in Indiana.
Each year, the Worthy Grand Matron of Indiana appoints a State Chair and District Chairs to the Our World of Youth Committee to raise funds to be awarded to eligible students as determined by the Scholarship Awards Committee.
Applications must be submitted before the deadline as determined by the Scholarship Awards Committee. The Scholarship Awards Committee will then meet to decide eligibility of the applicants and the amount of the awards based on funds available. Those selected for a scholarship award will be notified by mail to their address as shown on the application and they will be announced at the Grand Chapter Session held in June.
