This year the National Eagle Scout Association will award 150 scholarships to Eagle Scouts through various Eagle Scout scholarship funds. These scholarships vary in size from $1,000 to $50,000.
The scholarships are for tuition, room, board, and books only, and are limited to use at a four-year accredited college or university that offers at least a bachelor's degree upon completion of the course of studies.
These scholarships are not available to students attending a trade school, two-year college, or any of the U.S. military academies, because at these academies expenses covered by NESA scholarships are already paid by the United States government.
Recipients will be notified by July 15, 2013.
