The 2024 application opened on August 1, 2023.
Applicants will be judged on scholarship, leadership, and financial need.
Male and female students compete separately.
Ranging from $1,000 per year to $7,500 per year, Most Valuable Student scholarships are for students pursuing a four-year degree, on a full-time basis (minimum of 12 semester hours), in a U.S. college or university. All scholarships are in the form of certificates of award conditional upon the full-time enrollment of the winner in an accredited U.S. college or university.
The Chicago office of the Elks National Foundation announced the 500 national winners in April, 2023. (Many local Lodges, districts and state Elks associations award their own scholarships through this program. These scholarships are not to be confused with the 500 Elks National Foundation Most Valuable Student Scholarships.)

The Top 20 scholars, selected from the 500 national semi-finalists, will receive an invitation to the weekend and scholarships of $30,000. The 480 runners-up will receive scholarships of $4,000. Attendance at Leadership Weekend is required to be part of the Top 20 cohort and receive $30,000.
