The Darleen J. and Robert L. Walker Scholarship Fund was established to provide financial assistance to students studying law or entering law school anywhere in Illinois or Milwaukee, Wisc. or St. Louis, Mo.

While scholarships are open to all, strong preference is given to applicants who are Masons, who come from Masonic families or are former residents of the Masonic Children's Home in LaGrange, Ill.

The application deadline for the 2014-2015 Walker Scholarship has now passed. The selection committee is reviewing all complete applications and financial documentation and recipients will be notified prior to the start of the academic year.

We will begin accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic year in January of 2015.

We regret to announce the passing of Louise Shannon on April 15, 2014, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Sister of the late Darleen Walker, for whom this scholarship fund is named, Mrs. Shannon was a dedicated member of the selection committee from its very beginning in 2008. She personally championed several of the fund's recipients over the years and her voice and hard work will be greatly missed. Mrs. Shannon leaves behind two daughters, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Services were held on Monday, April 21.
