MSA Recipients

In the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction (USA) there is an award known as the “Meritorious Service Award” which may be conferred upon members of the Rite who have attained the 32nd Degree and who by reason of meritorious service of a Masonic character, are deemed worthy of such recognition. The M.S.A. can only be awarded by a State Council of Deliberation to a member in good standing for outstanding or significant services performed within the Scottish Rite and cannot be applied for.
