Troop 55 Eagle Scout Scholarship

The Troop 55 Eagle Scout Scholarship offers a $500 award towards college expenses to a Troop 55 Eagle Scout in their junior or senior year of high school.  While the focus is on scouts in high school, the scholarship board is also open to applications from Troop 55 alumni who are already attending college, so long as they are currently active in Scouting.  The selection is based on the applicant’s contributions to Troop 55 after having attained the rank of Eagle. 

The purpose of the Eagle Scout Scholarship is to recognize exceptional dedication to Troop 55 and Scouting by an Eagle Scout after the achievement of the rank of Eagle.  The scholarship hopes to encourage Troop 55 Eagle Scouts to continue their involvement in the Scouting program, and especially to provide leadership to Troop 55 after achieving Eagle Scout rank.  The scholarship attempts to recognize early potential for a lifetime involvement with Scouting.
