NATIONAL EAGLE SCOUT ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIPS
More than 5,000 NESA scholarship applications are received each year, and fewer than 100 are awarded, so the competition is stiff. Plans are being formulated to greatly increase the amount of funds available to award NESA Eagle Scout scholarships through future years.
There are two types of Nationally awarded Eagle Scout scholarships; academic scholarships and the Hall/McElwain Merit Scholarship. Find out more about these scholarship and others by going to the National Eagle Scout Association website - www.nesa.org/scholarships.html .
NESA academic scholarship applicants must be Eagle Scouts graduating high school and entering college in the year for which they apply for a scholarship. 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.
NESA merit scholarship applicants must be Eagle Scouts graduating high school or undergraduate college students no farther than completion of the junior year. Recipients may receive the scholarship one time only.
2010 NESA Eagle Scout scholarship applications are available at http://www.nesa.org/applications.html . Please note that Scouts must use the current form. Applications from prior years will not be accepted.
