We seek nominations from those who know their students best and receive several hundred nominations each year from each recipient's guidance counselor. 

The Key Award winner receives an $80,000 scholarship over a four-year period, $20,000 per year, upon enrolling at Elmira College. If a Key Award winner is eligible for a merit scholarship of a greater value at the time of admission to Elmira College, that scholarship supersedes the Elmira College Key Award. The student will still be recognized as a Key Award winner at Elmira College. Recipients attending Elmira are also honored in the Fall of their freshman year by the Alumni Association and are presented with the prestigious Elmira College Key.
