Elks Scholarships Available

Helping promising students achieve their dreams through higher education is one of the principal goals of the Elks and scholarships are an important part of our charitable donations. Every spring Savannah Lodge 183 awards six scholarships to the three top high school senior male and female students in the Chatham, Bryan and Effingham County area to help them with the costs of their college education. The scholarships total $3000 and consist of $600 for each of the first place students, $500 for each of the second place students and $400 for the each third place students. Applications are available from your high school guidance counselors or call the Lodge for further information. The awards are presented at a formal dinner for the winners and their parents before the Lodge membership and guests. The top students are automatically entered in the Georgia State Scholarship competition and winners here go on to the Elks National Scholarships. Each year we also award $1000 bonds to the top Eagle and Girl Scouts at award dinners in the spring and fall. Be sure to inquire about this through your scouting organizations or through the Savannah Lodge. In addition to these, there are many other scholarships available through the Grand Lodge.
