Elks Lodge 680 in Cadillac has opened their application process for scholarships for high school seniors.
The Elks Lodge provides a national scholarship and many local scholarships for students at surrounding high schools.
More than $2 million will be awarded to this year’s 500 national finalists.
Twenty top awards range from $20,000 to $50,000.
Four hundred and eighty students will get $4,000 for college.
Scholarship applications are judged based on many things like grades, community service, and financial need.
“You know money is tight and college is terribly expensive so these students and families really appreciate anything that they can get that can kind of defray the costs,” Cindy Kelley, Elks Lodge 680 scholarship committee said.
