  National NESA Scholarships          

School Chair

Each year, NESA Scholarships ranging from $50,000 to $1000 are awarded to approximately 150 Eagle Scouts.  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.
