Elks Most Valuable Student Scholarship Application Open Now

September 4th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Every year, the Elks National Foundation awards the Most Valuable Student scholarship to 500 of the most intelligent, service-minded leaders who are embarking on their college careers.


All high school seniors who are U. S. citizens are welcome to apply.  Applicants will be judged on scholarship, leadership, and financial need.  The top 20 finalists will participate in an all-expenses paid Leadership Weekend in Chicago April 11-14, 2019.


Throughout the weekend, the finalists will engage, serve, and interview with national judges for the top prizes.  Two first-place awards of $50,000, two second-place awards of $40,000, and two third-place awards of $30,000 will be given to the top scholars.  The remaining 14 finalists will receive $20,000.  The 480 runners-up will receive fifth-place scholarships of $4,000.


The application is open on-line now, and the deadline to apply is November 15, 2018.  This is a great opportunity for students to join the Elks family and be part of a lifelong network.  Visit for more information.


The Elks also provide scholarships for vocational study and legacy scholarships for children and grandchildren of Elks members.
