Eagle Scout Scholarships

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!

 

With the start of a new school year now is the perfect time for any boy in grades 1 - 5 not currently in Cub Scouts to join the adventure.

Parents:  Be on the look out for the posters at your school and the flyers being sent home with the boys for information on the Cub Scout sign up night in your area.  Or you can call the council office at 662-328-7228 and we will help direct you to the local Cub Scout Pack in your area.

Wood Badge...Scouting's premier adult leader training experience

Wood Badge is the BSA's most advanced leadership training for all volunteer adult leaders.  It teaches skills that are useful in Scouting, work, family and other community service activities.

The focus is on leadership and team-building, not outdoor skills.  Our council is able to present this training experience every three years...and our next course is in the spring of 2015...don't miss out!
