Student Scholarships

Help for deserving Wyoming students.

We have some excellent students in Wyoming, but not all of them can afford to go on to college or a trade school. Through our Student Scholarships Program, we enable bright, hard-working students to seek out and receive the education they deserve.

The Wyoming Elks Association awards a total of $20,000 in scholarships every year to students living in Wyoming. Some of the scholarships are for Wyoming community colleges or universities, others are for community colleges and universities throughout the nation, and still others are for vocational schools.
