The Santa Cruz Elks Lodge announced the 2021 Most Valuable Student scholarship contest. The deadline to apply is Nov. 15.
The Most Valuable Student scholarship is available to high school seniors who are United States citizens. Applicants do not need to be related to a member of the Elks. Applications are judged on academics, leadership, service and financial need. The application is completed online at www.elks.org/scholars/scholarships/mvs.cfm.
Ranging from $1,000 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.
The Elks National Foundation will announce 500 national winners in April 2021.
