2020 MVS Scholarship Application
The Elks National Foundation is proud to announce the launch of the 2020 Most Valuable Student Scholarship contest!
The application opened on August 5, 2019.
The Elks National Foundation will award 500 four-year scholarships to the highest-rated applicants in the 2020 competition. Male and female students compete separately. Ranging from $1,000 per year to $12,500 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 will announce the 2020 500 national winners in late April 2020. (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.)
Applications are due online by November 5, 2019.
The top 20 MVS finalists will attend the Most Valuable Student Leadership Weekend from April 23-26, 2020, in Chicago to interview for the top awards of $50,000, $40,000 and $30,000. The remaining 14 finalists will receive $20,000 each.
480 other deserving national finalists will receive $4,000 scholarships to support their college education.
