Elks Scholarships

Trade Scholarship
The Trade Scholarship is an innovative scholarship intended to help those students that are often overlooked for financial aid. The Trade Scholarship is for graduating seniors as well as non-traditional students (those changing career fields or those needing additional education to progress in their current career) who will be pursuing a trade or certificate program.
Applications must be submitted to the Local Lodges on or before January 31, 2017. Judging at local lodges must be completed and the top 4 applicants submitted to State Chair, Andi Birdsong, on or before March 31, 2017

 Nursing Scholarship
The Nursing Scholarship program was selected as the major project for the Tennessee Elks Association in 1956 as a means to relieve a critical shortage of nurses in Tennessee. The need for nursing scholarships is just as important. Each year the Tennessee Elks continue to fund varying levels of scholarships to students. This program is administered by the Tennessee Elks Benevolent Trust (TEBT).
Nursing scholarship application forms are distributed to Tennessee Elks Lodges in early October. The local Lodges then distribute them to high school counselors, colleges and hospitals within the jurisdiction of each Lodge to be used by individuals pursuing a 4-year degree in the nursing field. Applications must be submitted to the Lodges as indicated on the application forms—usually in January. After judging at the local and state levels, winners are notified in April or May. In managing the scholarships, awards are paid directly to the student’s school of choice. The student then may draw against an account for allowable expenses such as tuition, books, lab fees and dormitory expense.
For more information, contact your local Elks Lodge.
To apply for a nursing scholarship, click on the document below, complete the requirements and deliver the application and supporting materials to your local Elks Lodge.
