Welcome to the Elks Family

Since 1931, the Elks National Foundation has helped students recognize their academic dreams. Each year, we award more than $3 million in college scholarships to at least 850 outstanding, service-minded high school seniors. Once you're an Elks scholar, you're family.

Helping Others, Changing the World

Service is at the center of what it means to be an Elks scholar. Today’s Elks scholars can be tomorrow’s Elks, but we have to make that happen by engaging them and welcoming them to the #ElksFamily. Learn more about our scholars and how we connect them to service below.
