Scholarship Description

Elks National Foundation Legacy Awards are four-year, $4,000 scholarships. The Foundation will offer a total of up to 250 awards.


* Any child or grandchild (or step-child, step-grandchild, or legal ward) of a living Elk, or a charter member of a Lodge. The Elk must also be a paid-up member. Great-grandchildren are not eligible.
* The applicant must be a high school senior.
* The applicant must apply through the related member's Elks Lodge, regardless of where the applicant resides.
* If the applicant's parent and grandparent are both Elk members, the applicant must apply through the parent's Elks Lodge.
* Students may apply for more than one ENF scholarship; however, they may win only one. In cases where the student qualifies for more than one, we will award the scholarship with the greater value.
* Legacy Awards may only be applied to accredited US American schools, colleges or universities. (Note: Applicants from Guam, Panama, Puerto Rico and the Philippines may apply Legacy Awards toward schools, colleges or universities in their respective homes.)
* Applicants must take the Scholastic Aptitude Test or the American College Test by December 31

Applications will be available ONLINE ONLY.
