NESA Scholarships

This year, NESA Scholarships ranging from $50,000 to $1000 will be awarded to approximately 200 Eagle Scouts nationally.  Scholarship committees are formed each year in each of the four BSA regions (including our Western Region) to recommend scholarship recipients, with the final determination made by the national NESA Scholarship Committee.  Here are the links:
