Elks Scholarship

Sep 16, 2021 | Scholarships

Since 1931, the Elks National Foundation has helped students recognize their academic dreams. Each year, we award more than $3 million in college scholarships to at least 800 outstanding, service-minded high school seniors. These scholarships range from smaller, one-time local awards distributed by individual lodges such as ours, to larger, 4-year scholarships at the national level.  Every student that applies has the opportunity to win any of these awards based on the judging criteria set forth by our national organization.
Applicants will be judged on scholarship, leadership, and financial need.

  • Current high school seniors, or the equivalent, who are citizens of the United States are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants do not need to be related to a member of the Elks.
  • High school graduates are not eligible to apply.
  • Applicants must be citizens of the United States on the date their applications are submitted; permanent legal resident status does not qualify.

The 2022 application deadline is November 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time
