The John D. Skoglund Memorial Scholarship Fund 

The John D. Skoglund Memorial Scholarship Fund was originally established in 1978 by Paul and Lydia Skoglund as a living memorial to their son John who, until his death in a tragic automobile accident, had been a dedicated and very active Demolay.

The purpose of the fund is to provide educational assistance in the form of non-repayable scholarship grants to qualified applicants who are members of the Order of Rainbow for Girls (under the Grand Assembly in Germany), the Order of Demolay for Boys (Jurisdiction of Germany), or children of Life Members or members in good standing of a Lodge within the American Canadian Grand Lodge (ACGL).

The Skoglund Fund is self-sustaining (i.e., independent from other ACGL charitable endeavors), it relies upon donations, contributions and bequests for asset growth and upon investment income for the annual grants to selected applicants. The perpetuity of the Skoglund Fund can only be assured through the concern and generosity of those interested in assisting our young people pursue their educational goals.
