The Elks National Foundation is ecstatic to announce its Most Valuable Student Scholarship Contest conducted for the year 2021. The program is available for the students who are current high school seniors, or the equivalent, and also citizens of the United States. Applicants do not need to be related to a member of the Elks to be eligible.
The program is created to serving your community in ways that will raise the Lodge’s profile, energize the membership, and encourage former members to return to the fold. The mission of the Elks Contest is to help Elks build healthier communities and students in their higher education career pathway.
Elks invest in their communities by programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life. The ENF can help Elks build healthier communities thanks to contributions from our generous donors.
