Elks National Foundation Legacy Awards


Scholarship Value: $4,000
Awards Available: 300
Award Deadline: February 7, 2022

Legacy Awards are $4,000 scholarships available to children and grandchildren of Elks members. Eligibility requirements are outlined below.

Who is Eligible?

A) For the 2022 contest, 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, 2019, or a charter member of a Lodge that was instituted on or after April 1, 2019, is eligible to apply. The Elk must also be a paid-up member through March 31, 2022. Great-grandchildren are not eligible.

B) The applicant must be a high school senior.

C) The applicant must apply online only. The 2022 Legacy Awards application deadline is February 7, 2022.

D) If the applicant's parent and grandparent are both Elk members, the applicant must apply through the parent's Elks Lodge.

E) We have waived the standardized test requirement for the 2022 Legacy contest. You do not need to submit ACT and/or SAT scores.

F) Students may apply for more than one ENF scholarship; however, they may win only one. In cases where the student wins more than one, we will award the scholarship with the greater value. Students can accept local and state scholarships, which are separate from the awards at the national level.

G) 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.)

H) If you are selected as a 2022 Legacy Awards recipient, you will be required to perform service once a year with an Elks Lodge during the four years you are receiving the scholarship. Click here for more information about serving with the Elks.

Who will you compete against?

Legacy Awards are $4,000 scholarships ($1,000 per year for four years). The Foundation will offer a total of 350 awards in the 2022 contest.

Children and grandchildren will compete separately against other children and grandchildren in their state. Each state is eligible to receive a number of awards based on its past support of the Elks National Foundation. Each state's quota is divided evenly among children and grandchildren. In states where the quota is an uneven number, the extra award is allocated to children of Elks, rather than grandchildren.

Who selects the Legacy Award Winners?

The Selection Committee is appointed by the ENF Board of Trustees, and consists of professionals who are not connected with either the Elks National Foundation or the BPO Elks of the USA. The Selection Committee is responsible for the confidential review of each applicant's file. They determine the Legacy Awards winners. All decisions are final.
