Scholarships

Dozens of universities, BSA local councils, and religious, civic, and military organizations offer college scholarships to Eagle Scouts. Some scholarships are needs-based; others are merit-based. Some go to every Eagle Scout applicant; others are highly competitive. Consult your local council to see if it offers Eagle scholarships.  Also, consult any college or university your are interested in to see if they offer scholarships for Eagle Scouts.

The National Eagle Scout Association directory lists those scholarships for which NESA had information. We will update the directory as new scholarships appear or as information changes. We welcome your suggestions or corrections; send them to NESA@scouting.org.

All the scholarship described here on the NESA site are subject to change. For the latest information, contact the awarding agency.
