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 youir local Elks Lodge.
