We know Elks scholars are dedicated to service. Now, you have the opportunity to come together in service with your Elks scholar peers. In 2016-17, the Elks National Foundation will offer three Elks Scholar Service Trips for up to 20 Elks scholars each in the summer, winter and spring. These trips will offer you the opportunity to learn about societal issues, serve those in need in the name of the Elks, and connect with your Elks Family from across the country.
