Eagle Scouts know to be prepared, and when it comes to being prepared for college, being prepared includes making sure you're not overlooking available scholarships.
For the fall, 2014 college semester, the National Eagle Scout Association awarded 86 scholarships in the 14 states that comprise the Southern Region. The scholarships ranged from $1,000 to $25,000.
Only two of those 84 scholarships were awarded to Mississippi Eagle Scouts.
Scholarships are awarded based on academics and merit. Applying is relatively easy compared to some of the other scholarship opportunities available to freshmen, so why not apply?
This link gives all the details on the scholarships.
This is the link to the scholarship application information.
Note that the scholarship window for 2015 scholarships starts October 1, 2014, and ends Dec. 31, 2014.
Let's get our NESA application numbers up, and get Mississippi (and our council) better represented in the awarding of NESA scholarships!
