Mortar Board now accepting applications for 2021 class

Apply Today!!
Apply to Mortar Board by Jan. 29

Mortar Board is the University of Nebraska’s only national senior honor society. University of Nebraska–Lincoln juniors and seniors can apply for the Black Masque Chapter of Mortar Board until Jan. 29, 2021.

Mortar Board, an association of collegians selected for distinguished ability in scholarship, leadership and service, was founded on Feb. 15, 1918, at Syracuse University and has since grown to include over 200 chartered chapters and 200,000 alumni. This chapter, the Order of the Black Masque, was founded in 1905. While it is an honor to be selected for membership in Mortar Board, it is the continued commitment to serve that differentiates Mortar Board from the other honorary societies.

During the past year, Mortar Board has accomplished numerous activities including honoring individuals who have made a difference through the “People Who Inspire” banquet, recognizing Nebraska’s most outstanding educators through the Professor of the Month award program, participating in the RSO competition during homecoming week, volunteering weekly at Clinton Elementary, and co-sponsoring the annual Jack Frost Jog to support the Team Jack Foundation. As a member of Mortar Board, students will take part in a variety of activities like these with an outstanding group of individuals.

Freshman, sophomores and seniors are invited to apply to be Mortar Board Notables and for the Drvol Family Scholarship by Jan. 29, 2021, also.

For questions, contact the selections chairs or visit the Mortar Board website.
