NESA Academic Scholarship
NESA academic scholarships are awarded to Eagle Scouts based on school and Scouting participation, academic performance, and financial need. All applicants must meet a minimum SAT or ACT score and apply in their senior year of high school if the board of review is held on or before October 31, 2016.
Eagle Scouts who are currently in their senior year of high school and will not pass the board of review by October 31, 2016 may apply during the next scholarship cycle between August 1, 2017 – October 31, 2017 even though they may be attending college at that time.
NESA scholarships are not available to students attending community colleges or any of the U.S. military academies because at these military academies, expenses covered by the NESA scholarships are already paid by the U.S. government.
Scholarship applicants must be members of the National Eagle Scout Association or submit a NESA membership application by October 31, 2016 to be eligible for an award.
