About the Upton Foundation

Founded in 1994 by the members of Willis Stewart Lodge No. 224, F&AM, in memory of Past Master Jack L. Upton, the Upton Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Willis Stewart Lodge 224. Our goal is to assist Kentucky and Southern Indiana kids with their journey of higher learning. We do this by providing them with a scholarship to a Kentucky or Indiana college.

At Upton we are very excited to help the youth of our area pursue their passions through education. We believe that by providing this service we not only help the student, we help our community and our Country. It is very American to lend a helping hand to a worthy and well qualified person. We hope and trust that the student will pay it forward in service to our community and Country.

This is our mission at Willis Stewart Lodge 224 and The Upton Foundation.

To apply for a scholarship please send a letter of request answering the following question;

  • Your name and address.
  • Your high school.
  • Where you want to attend college.
  • What are you going to study and why?
  • What are your goals to serve society after graduation?

Please include any other information and three references or letters of recommendation.
