2017 Abraham Lincoln Council Eagle Scholarships
Each year, at least one Eagle Scout Scholarship for $1,000 is presented. With only 63 Eagles in the class, the odds are not too bad. Selections are made through blind data supplied to a committee of volunteers.
The award of a $1,000 college scholarship, is given to a member of the Abraham Lincoln Council's previous year's "Class of Eagle Scouts". If there are multiple scholarships, they are awarded to different members of the Council's previous year's class. This year they will go to Eagles who completed their board of review in 2016, applies, and are selected by the committee. Applicants do not need to be graduating seniors.
The Abraham Lincoln Council will hold the awards until such time as the Eagles are in college or until their 25th birthday. Checks will be issued to the Eagle Scout and their college. Unused scholarships will revert back to the Scholarship Fund for future distribution. Applications must be submitted to the council by January 24, 2017. They will be awarded at the Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner in February 27, 2017.
