Scholarship Description

Scholarships provided vary each year, depending on the funds available.

All applicants must:
* Be an Eagle Scout and have received credentials from the
national office.
* Be a graduating high school senior entering college in the
year a scholarship is applied for. Scholarships are awarded only to those who graduate from high school in the calendar year in which scholarships are presented. Exception: Scouts whose Eagle Scout boards of review are held the same year of their high school graduation may apply in that calendar year. They may receive a scholarship one time only.
* Provide a transcript of high school grades covering a minimum of six semesters. (The transcript need not be "official" - it may be a photocopy.)
* Have an SAT score of at least 1090 and/or an ACT score of 26. These scores must be on an official test sheet or on the high school transcript in No. 4 above, and must be submitted with the application. Applications will not be considered if the minimum scores are not met.
* Have demonstrated leadership ability in Scouting and a strong record of participation in activities outside of Scouting.
* Complete the Financial Need section of this application. It must be signed by the applicant and countersigned by the parent. Do not send W–2 forms.
* Provide one signed recommendation letter from a volunteer or professional Scout leader who knows the applicant personally, and list Scouting title on the letter. This is the only endorsement required. Endorsements from teachers, counselors, etc., will not be accepted.
