Elks Scholar Service

Featured Legacy Service
Project

2015 Legacy scholar Matthew Kratz and 2014 Legacy scholar Jennie Scislow volunteered their time with Dakota County, Minn., Lodge No. 2832 to help with their annual steak and lobster picnic.

"It felt good helping everyone have a nice gathering," says Matthew.

And Jennie agreed. "I was very excited to hear that serving with the Elks was a part of keeping my scholarship because for all the help the Elks has given me through this scholarship, the least I could to would be to volunteer with them," she says.

We know you're dedicated to service, and the Elks are, too! Starting in 2014, all Legacy Awards recipients are required to serve with the Elks once per year in order to receive their scholarship funds. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the Elks while serving your community!

From rebounding at a Hoop Shoot contest to helping score scholarship applications. From serving with your Lodge’s Community Investments Program grant projects to creating a Lodge Facebook page—the possibilities for serving with the Elks are endless.

2014 and 2015 Legacy scholars should have completed their service any time before June 15, 2016, in order to receive their 2016-17 scholarship check. Once you’ve participated in your Lodge service activity, please click here, log in with your ScholarWeb username and password, and complete the online Scholar Service Form. Remember, this form must be completed and submitted before you are able to receive your 2016-17 scholarship disbursement.

“We had our annual bookbag handout to youth this weekend and Christian Schmitt was one our volunteers. What a pleasure to have him work with us for this event! From the moment I spoke with him on the phone to make arrangements for him to help, to the finish of the event, his enthusiasm, energy and just the personality he brings speaks well of the man he is growing into! He is looking forward to volunteering in the future and we look forward to having him. Can't wait until he can become an Elk!"
~ Butch Johns, Exalted Ruler of Lancaster, Pa., Lodge No. 134

We encourage all Elks scholars to serve with the Elks, not just Legacy scholars! If you are a Most Valuable Student or Emergency Educational Grant recipient, and you've recently served with the Elks, please email scholarship@elks.org to let us know!
