Each year, more than $3.64 million is offered through Elks Club scholarships. The Elks National Foundation Scholarship provides college scholarships through three different programs. The provision of college club scholarships through the Elks Foundation is based on a commitment to community service.
There are Elks Club lodges located throughout the United States, with a total of nearly 1 million members and 2,000 lodges situated around the country. As a whole, the Elks provide a number of charitable services to assist in their overall goal of building stronger communities. The provision of the Elks scholarship is one way they accomplish this goal.
