Before you send the 2014 scholarship application linkExternal Link to Eagle Scouts in your family, troop, team, post, ship or crew, read the following requirements carefully. Some of these have changed from previous years.

2014 NESA Scholarship Requirements

  • These scholarships are not available to students attending trade schools, two-year colleges or any of the U.S. military academies, because at these academies expenses covered by NESA scholarships are already paid by the U.S.  government.
  • Academic scholarship applicants must apply during their senior year in high school unless the Eagle Scout board of review was held after Dec. 31, 2012. In those cases, the applicant must apply by Dec. 31, 2013, even if he is already attending college.
  • All academic scholarship applicants must have a minimum 1800 SAT or 28 ACT score to apply. A “superscore” may be used to meet the minimum 1800 SAT requirement
  • All applicants must be current members of the National Eagle Scout Association to apply. Applicants with memberships that expire on Dec. 31, 2013, are still eligible to apply and are invited to renew.

Application deadline: Dec. 31, 2013. Winners can expect notification in summer 2014.
