APO Eagles the Eagle Scout Alumni Association of Alpha Phi Omega, National Service Fraternity (APO), and National Affiliate of the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) is proud to announce the creation of a new Scholarship for college-bound scouts. The Leaders of Service Scholarship program seeks to recognize Scouts who have demonstrated they are leaders, are friends with all, and are of service to the communities in which they live.
Between $2,000 and $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to Eagle Scouts who have shown active participation in school, Scouting activities, and community service. In addition, they will have demonstrated a commitment to Leadership Friendship & Service. The first award for this program will be made in June 2022 with recognition of the winner(s) and national finalists during the Fall Semester.
Nowhere is this better exemplified than in the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest attainable rank in Scouting. Scouts must demonstrate proficiency in leadership, service, and outdoor skills at multiple levels before achieving the Eagle Scout rank; fewer than 4 percent of Scouts earn the coveted rank. Over the past century, the hard-earned rank has become widely recognized—both in and outside of Scouting—as a mark of distinction. This scholarship will reward those who have gone above and beyond.
APO, was founded by Scouts for Scouts — transporting the Scouting commitment to service into college, where service projects are a great way to give back, make friends and strengthen résumés. This program seeks to enhance and enable that connection between the high school and college experiences by growing a commitment to service.
Funding for this scholarship comes from the membership of the APO Eagles Association. Several generous donations and matching funds have gotten this started. Fundraising efforts are currently underway to fund this program. Information on how to donate can be found on www.APOEagles.org or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
