The 2015 Most Valuable Student and Legacy Awards Scholarships began Sept. 1.

The Most Valuable Student Scholarship is open to all high school seniors who are American citizens. The deadline to get completed applications to the Brainerd Elks Lodge is Dec. 2.

All applications must start at the local lodge level within their jurisdiction based on the student's home address. Five hundred four-year scholarships, ranging from $1,000 per year to $12,500 per year, will be awarded for graduating high school seniors based on financial need, leadership and scholarship.

Applications are available at mnelks.org or elks.org.

Applications for the 2015 Legacy Award are available only online at elks.org/enf/scholars/legacy.cfm. Forms must be postmarked by Jan. 30, 2015.

Applicants must take the SAT or ACT by Dec. 31. Scholarships up to $4,000 are available. Any child, stepchild or grandchild of an Elk who has been a member in good standing for at least two years is eligible to apply for this award.

An Emergency Education Grant program reaches out to children from families where an Elk parent is deceased or totally disabled. The grant is for educational assistance only and is not intended to cover the entire cost of a college education.

The student must be attending a U.S. college or university, be an undergraduate student, unmarried and under age 23 at the time of application.

Applications are available from July 1 to Dec. 31 of the academic year for which assistance is desired and may be obtained by contacting the ENF Scholarship office at 773-755-4732 or scholarship@elks.org .
