Elks National Foundation offers scholarship contest


The Elks National Foundation announced the start of the 2020 Most Valuable Student scholarship contest.

The Most Valuable Student scholarship is available to high school seniors who are United States citizens. Applicants do not need to be related to a member of the Elks. Males and females compete separately and are judged on scholarship, leadership and financial need.

The application is completed online and must be submitted by the Nov. 5 deadline. The 500 national winners will be announced in April 2020, after the top 20 finalists participate in the Leadership Weekend in Chicago, April 23-26.

This year, the Elks National Foundation is investing $4.1 million in college scholarships for the nation’s future lawyers, doctors, engineers, innovators and more.

According to the news release, through the contest, the foundation will award 20 top scholarships ranging from $20,000 to $50,000. The remaining 480 runners-up will receive $4,000 scholarships.


Applications for the 2020 contest are available on the Elks National Foundation’s website.
