The Eagle Scouts came into being as a way to keep Boy Scouts who achieved Eagle Scout status engaged.
It is more than an honor to become an Eagle Scout.
If an Eagle Scout enlists in the U.S. Armed Forces, he may receive additional ranks within the Eagle Scouts to honor his achievement in service to his country.
One honor that is bestowed rarely upon an Eagle Scout is earned after many additional years of dedicated service.
Most scholarships may be accessed directly through the National Eagle Scout Association Scholarships page.
