Application requirements for the National Eagle Scout Association Scholarship are:

Additional Information: The scholarships are not available to students attending any of the U.S. military academies, because at these academies, expenses covered by NESA scholarships are already paid by the United States government.

These funds may be used for tuition, room, board, and books; and may be used only as long as the recipient maintains full-time enrollment status.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $200,000.
