Order of the Eastern Star Scholarship

Prospect Chapter 367 of the Order of the Eastern Star has disbanded. The group wanted the remaining money in their account to still be used for scholarships until it runs out. They have turned the money and their project over to the PBL Education Foundation, so for the next few years, one $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior from PBL High School.

General Policies:

  1. Applicant must make a formal application, which may be obtained by using the link at the bottom of the page, from the PBL Guidance Office or the Guidance website. Applications must be postmarked by March 2, 2018 and mailed to this address:
