Update: The date for submitting applications has passed. Selection is now taking place. Good luck to all.
All applications are to be completed online by accessing them at enf.elks.org/mvs. Within the body of the application, students can select which of the five (5) closest lodges to their home address they want to receive their applications. PLEASE INFORM ANY STUDENTS YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN YOUR FAMILY, TO DESIGNATE LAKELAND LODGE 1291 TO RECEIVE THEIR APPLICATIONS. The deadline for making application to the MVS Program is November 15, 2018.
If any member of Lakeland Lodge 1291 has a child or grandchild who is a high school senior planning to attend a college or university next year (2019), please have them complete a MVS application as explained above. I am also asking that you let me know that your child or grandchild is applying by dropping me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child or grandchild attends a high school outside the Lakeland area, please let me know that as well because special provisions need to be made to get a “hard copy” of their application to our local Scholarship Committee for consideration. In addition, children and grandchildren of active Lakeland Lodge members can also apply directly to the Elks National Foundation (ENF) for a Legacy Award. THIS IS SEPARATE FROM AND IN ADDITION TO THE MVS PROGRAM AND OUR LOCAL LODGE’S PROGRAM. Legacy applications are also done online at enf.elks.org/leg and the deadline for Legacy applications is February 1, 2019 at 11:59 a.m. Central Time.
As our Lodge’s Scholarship Chairperson, I am very willing to discuss the various Elk Scholarship Programs with any of our members and answer any questions you might have. Again, my email address is email@example.com

We are pleased to announce that this year our Lakeland Elks Lodge 1291 has been given the Gratitude Grant. This Grant will be given to this year’s recipient—Senior Orphans of Polk County Florida. This is an organization that was founded over 25 years ago to assist those less fortunate. They provide to the neediest of seniors—those on a fixed income of no more than $600.00 a month!! They are faced with the choice of eating or buying much needed medications on a daily basis. As our Elks Lodge always does—we hope, with YOUR help, to do our best to add to this grant. For the entire month of August 2018, our lodge will be holding a drive for additional items and funds to assist them. Please, bring your donations to the lodge—that’s all you’ll need to do.
Our goal is to add an additional $500.00, be it in supplies or cash donations, to the Grant Funds.Senior Orphans Drive Flyer 18
