  • Scholarship Description
  • 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.

    Exception: Eagle Scouts who are currently in their senior year of high school and will not pass the board of review by October 31 may apply during the next scholarship cycle between August 1-October 31 of the following year, 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.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
