The Elks National Foundation Most Valuable Student competition.
Any high school senior who is a citizen of the United States is eligible to apply.
Applicants need not be related to a member of the Elks.
College students are not eligible to apply.
Applicants must be citizens of the United States on the date their applications are signed; permanent legal resident status does not qualify.
Male and female students compete separately.
Applicants will be judged on scholarship, leadership, and financial need.
All scholarships are in the form of certificates of award conditional upon the full-time enrollment of the winner in an accredited U.S. college or university.
Applications must advance through local, district and state competitions to reach national judging. The Chicago office of the Elks National Foundation will notify the national finalists by email in late February. To be eligible for an award, national finalists will be required to submit a secondary application online. The national finalists will also be required to mail their Student Aid Report to the ENF. T
The Chicago office of the Elks National Foundation will announce the national winners, and notify them in writing, by mid-April. (Many local Lodges, districts and state Elks associations award their own scholarships through this program. These scholarships are not to be confused with the Elks National Foundation Most Valuable Student Scholarships.)
Ranging from $1,000 per year to $15,000 per year, Most Valuable Student scholarships are for students pursuing a four-year degree, on a full-time basis (minimum of 12 semester hours), in a U.S. college or university.
