Arthur M. & Berdena King Eagle Scout Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 3
Award Deadline: December 31, 2020

Open to all Eagle Scouts who are currently registered in an active unit and have not reached their 19th birthday during the year of application. (The application year is the calendar year, 01 Jan. to 31 Dec.) The year that Eagle was awarded is not restricted. College plans do not need to be completed in order to receive the cash scholarship. Three cash scholarship awards are given: As the National First Place winner - $10,000.00; Runner-up - $6,000.00; 2nd runner-up - $4,000.00. You may apply more than one year if you meet the age requirements but no more than $10,000.00 total may be granted to any one Eagle Scout.

Entrants need to complete only one application -- the one for the chapter competition. If it is a winner it is then used for the state competition, and if it is a winner again it is used for the national competition.

The application consists of:

A) The two page application form

B) The Four Generation ancestor chart.

C) The 500 word Patriotic Theme

Prizes and recognitions may also be awarded at the SAR Chapter and State levels.

Note: Applications are accepted during a calendar year for Scholarships to be awarded in the Spring of the following year. Your State Chairman can give you specific deadlines for receipt of applications at Chapter and/or State levels. See our previous contest awardees.

The competition is conducted in three phases, local (Chapter), State (Society), and National. The competition is usually entered through the Chapter level. In some cases, the competition may be entered at the State level. You may not enter at the National level.
