Elks National Foundation's most valuable student scholarship contest planned
The cost of college is formidable, preventing many deserving students from attending at all and leaving many others to graduate with an overwhelming amount of debt. Last year, the average tuition at a private four-year institution rose 5.9 percent, reaching $25,143, and the average cost of attending a public four-year university increased 6.4 percent. The Elks National Foundation's Most Valuable Student Scholarship contest, which will launch on Sept. 1, aims to alleviate this financial burden for 500 ambitious students.
