The National Eagle Scout Association awards a varying number of scholarships to Eagle Scouts through various scholarship funds. These scholarships vary in size from $1,000 to $50,000. The scholarships are for tuition, room, board, and books only and are limited for use at a four-year accredited college or university that offers at least a bachelor's degree upon completion of the course of studies.
Scholarship committees are formed each year in each of the four BSA regions (Northeast, Southern, Central, and Western) to recommend recipients of these scholarships, with the final determination made by the national NESA Scholarship Committee.
Applications are due by the end of January.
