Go Back to School with the Elks


For many high school seniors, graduation is a major milestone. They completed high school and can't wait to embark on the next part of their journey --going to college. For some students, however, funding their college dreams seems an insurmountable challenge. That's where the Elks comes in.

If you know a student who needs help making college a reality, encourage them to explore scholarship opportunities from the Elks National Foundation. The 2018 Most Valuable Student scholarship contest is open to any high school senior who is a U.S. Citizen. The ENF will award 500 four-year scholarships to the highest-rated applicants in the competition.

In addition, the competitive Legacy Award scholarship is exclusively available to the children and grandchildren of dues-paying Elks. Both applications will be available on the ENF website starting September 1, 2017.

For 2017-18, the Elks National Foundation appropriated $4.55 million to fund ENF scholarship programs, which ensure a bright future for our nation's youth. As important members of the Elks family, Elks scholars have many social and service opportunities to connect with the Elks and each other.
