Scoutmasters & other Scouts BSA adults:
Please make any 2020 Eagle Scouts from your unit aware that they may apply for two different college scholarships available to them.
The first scholarships are national in scope and are awarded by NESA (the National Eagle Scouts Association).
The application is at: https://nesa.org/for-eagle-scouts/scholarships/
- Eagles with a board of review date through Feb 8, 2021 may apply.
- includes members of the inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts, who will have an official date-of-rank of 2/8/2021.
- is open to Eagles through their junior year of college
- Eagles with BOR dates prior to 2020 who meet this criterion may (re-)apply
The second opportunity, The John William Pope Family Eagle Scout Scholarship is specific to Occoneechee Council.
Further information and an application is available on the Council web site at this link: https://ocscouts.org/pope-scholarship/
I’d note that the 2019 recipients of the Pope Scholarships did not include any Eagle from Shakori. The reason was that there were no applicants from the district!
Please encourage the 2020 Eagles from your units to apply for these awards!
Steve Blanchard, Shakori Advancement Chair
