Scholarship Available to Boy Scouts Only

This little known opportunity was brought to the attention of our council by a unit leader. This is an outstanding opportunity to obtain a scholarship for a Boy Scout who meets the requirements.

The VFW Scout of the Year Scholarship program provides a $5,000 award to an outstanding scout who is the recipient of a Boy Scout Eagle Award, a Venture Scouting Silver Award or a Sea Scout Quartermaster Award. Second-place winner receives a $3,000 award.


  • Be a registered, active member of a Boy Scout Troop, Venturing Crew, or a Sea Scout Ship;
  • Has received the Eagle Scout Award, Venture Silver Award or Sea Scout Quartermaster Award;
  • Has demonstrated practical citizenship in school, scouting and the community;
  • Has reached his/her 15th birthday and is enrolled in high school at the time of selection; and
