A little more detail on past scholarships

Scholarships

The National Eagle Scout Association offers two types of Eagle Scout scholarships:

Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships are based on school and Scouting participation, academic performance, and financial need. Applicants must score a minimum 1800 SAT (if taken before January, 2016), 1290 (if taken after March, 2016), or 28 ACT to apply. These include a varying number of NESA scholarships, and a varying number of Mabel and Lawrence S. Cooke scholarships. The Mabel and Lawrence S. Cooke scholarships are awarded annually and include four $25,000 scholarships (payable at $6,250 per year) and one $48,000 scholarship (up to $12,000 payable for four years), plus a varying number of others.

NESA offers an additional academic scholarship called the $50,000 NESA STEM scholarship (up to $12,500 payable for four years) to an applicant who plans to major in a science, technology, engineering, or math field.

NESA academic scholarship applicants must be Eagle Scouts applying during their senior year of high school. Exception: Scouts whose Eagle Scout boards of review are held after October 31 of their senior year may apply during the next scholarship cycle in the following year even though they may be in college by this time. Winners may receive a scholarship one time only.

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.

Merit Scholarships

The second type of NESA scholarships are the merit scholarships. Merit scholarships are based on school and Scouting participation, and community service. These awards cover the $2,000 and $4,000 Bailey scholarships, the $2,500 Robert and Rebecca Palmer scholarships, the Michael S. Malone/Windrush Publishing journalism scholarship, and the $5,000 Hall/McElwain merit scholarships. Each BSA region reviews applications and awards a varying number of these scholarships to local Scouts.

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.

Over 8,000 NESA scholarship applications are received annually, and fewer than 200 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 throughout future years.

 

2017 NESA Scholarship Applications

Scholarship Deadline

The 2017 NESA scholarship cycle opens on August 1, 2017, with a deadline of October 31, 2017. Recipients will be notified by mail on July 15, 2018.

All NESA scholarship applications must be submitted online. Paper copies from previous years are out of date and will not be accepted.

These scholarships are not available to students attending any of the U.S. military academies, because at these academies expenses covered by NESA scholarships are already paid by the United States government.

The Scholarship FAQ has been compiled to answer the most common questions.

 

Scholarship Types

NESA offers two basic types of scholarships: academic scholarships and merit scholarships.

NESA Academic Scholarship Requirements

NESA academic scholarships are based on school and Scouting participation, academic performance, and financial need.

  1. Academic scholarship applicants must apply during their senior year in high school unless the Eagle Scout board of review is held after October 31, 2017. In those cases, the applicant must apply between August 1, 2018 and October 31, 2018 even if he is already attending college. Eagle Scouts may apply for an academic scholarship one time only and must apply during the time frame defined above.
  2. All academic scholarship applicants must have a minimum 1800 SAT (or 1290 if taken after March 2016), or 28 ACT score to apply. A “super score” may be used to meet this requirement.
  3. All applicants must be members of the National Eagle Scout Association to receive a scholarship. Memberships may be purchased or renewed at http://www.nesa.org/membership.html.
    • Cooke scholarships ($2,500 – $48,000) – Awarded based on school and Scouting participation, academic performance, and financial need. Applicants must meet the minimum SAT or ACT score to apply.
    • NESA STEM scholarship ($50,000) – Awarded to one applicant annually who has chosen to pursue a career in a STEM-related field. Applicants for the STEM scholarship who are not selected will automatically be considered for a Cooke scholarship worth $2,500 – $48,000 each.

NESA Merit Scholarship Requirements

Eagle Scouts may apply for the NESA merit scholarships beginning in their senior year of high school and may continue applying every year up till the junior year in college. Applicants may win a NESA scholarship one time only. Previous NESA scholarship winners are not eligible to apply again. Merit scholarships are awarded based on school and Scouting participation and community service.

  • Hall/McElwain scholarships ($5,000) – Awarded based on school and Scouting participation and community service.
  • Robert and Rebecca Palmer scholarships ($2,500) – Awarded based on school and Scouting participation and community service.
  • Bailey merit scholarships ($2,000 -$4,000) – Awarded based on school and Scouting participation and community service.
  • Michael S. Malone/Windrush Publishing Journalism scholarship ($2,500) – Awarded to one Scout who plans to pursue a degree in journalism.

All applicants must be members of the National Eagle Scout Association to receive a scholarship.
