NESA Scholarship FAQ

Special Notes for 2016 Applicants

2016 Scholarship Dates
The 2016/2017 scholarship cycle opens on August 1, 2016, with a deadline of October 31, 2016. Recipients will be notified by mail on July 15, 2017.

Application Qualifications
Academic scholarship applicants must apply during their senior year in high school unless the Eagle Scout board of review was held after October 31, 2016. In those cases, the applicant must apply during the August 1 - October 31, 2017 scholarship cycle even if he is already attending college.

Eagle Scouts may apply for the NESA merit scholarships beginning in their senior year of high school and may continue applying every year up till their junior year in college.

Applicants may win a NESA scholarship one time only.

Scholarships available to trade schools
Effective immediately, NESA scholarships are payable to Scouts attending vocational trade schools and approved programs. In the past, NESA scholarships were available to four-year universities only. NESA scholarships are not payable to any of the U.S. military academies.

Do I need to be a NESA member to apply?
You must be a NESA member to receive a scholarship. However, you can apply for a NESA scholarship before you apply for a NESA membership. The system will not prevent you from creating an account if your membership has not been submitted or processed yet. NESA staffers will manually verify your NESA status before we offer an award. Scholarship applicants should apply for NESA membership by October 31.
