Who is eligible for ENF Legacy Awards?

  1. Any child or grandchild (or step-child, step-grandchild, or legal ward) of a living Elk who joined the Order on or before April 1, 2021, or a charter member of a Lodge that was instituted on or after April 1, 2021, is eligible to apply. The Elk must also be a paid-up member through March 31, 2024. Great-grandchildren are not eligible.
  2. The applicant must be a current high school senior, graduating during the 2023-24 school year.
  3. The applicant must apply online through this application.
  4. If the applicant's parent and grandparent are both Elk members, the applicant must apply through the parent's Elks Lodge.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.)

Once submitted, you can no longer edit your application or upload any supplemental files. Your application must be submitted no later than February 5, 2024.

The Elks National Foundation is not responsible for any technical errors that may arise as you complete and submit your application. We especially encourage you to upload required documents early, even if you aren't ready to submit your application.

In addition, it is in your best interest to submit your application early to avoid any last minute web traffic problems. If your application is received after February 5, 2024 it will be ineligible, regardless of the reason for late submission.
