R. Robert Dale Scholarship

R. Robert Dale served as Secretary/Administrator of St. Charles, IL Lodge 1368. He was devoted to the Moose fraternity, its precepts and endeavors. He never married; never became a father. His sister married into a modest degree of wealth, but she never had children either. Following the death of her husband, she and Robert named each other in their wills.

Robert survived her - but only by a few months. Robert Dale died on August 15, 1983, leaving an estate of more than $2 million, to be divided equally between the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home and the Loyal Order of Moose, both for the purpose of providing scholarships. In 1985, Director General Paul O’Hollaren and the Supreme Council approved a program in which the interest from the Dale Scholarship Fund was to be used to provide scholarships for sons and daughters of Moose members who had graduated from high school, to further their higher education, and the R. Robert Dale Scholarship Program was created.

Some 1,368 Dale Scholarships - totally $1,368,000 - have been awarded since the R. Robert Dale Scholarship Program began, with the graduating Class of 1987.

Applicants for the program must be high-school juniors with a grade-point average of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale. They are eligible only if their father, mother, step-parent, grandparent or legal guardian is a member of the Moose in good standing.

The number of scholarships awarded to each State and Provincial Moose Association, is computed based on the current membership of the Association and scholarship application submitted. This determines whether or not they hold an independent drawing during their Association convention. If the Association does not qualify for its own drawing, an at-large drawing is held at Moose International. Any individual Moose Lodge and its Chapter submitting 20 or more eligible applications qualifies for a bonus scholarship to be drawn from among just their applicants.

The Scholarship may be used for tuition, books, and fees at any accredited vocational or academic institution the winner chooses to attend.
