Each year, the National Jewish Committee on Scouting offers five scholarships worth a total of $7,000 to Jewish Eagle Scouts who also earn the Ner Tamid or Etz Chaim religious emblems. Some scholarships are based on financial need and others are not.
As in the last several years, we are using a modification of the NESA Scholarship Application for our scholarships. Information about our scholarships may be found at the NJCoS web site: http://www.jewishscouting.org/
Applications for the NESA scholarships are available at: http://www.nesa.org/scholarships.html .
For 2012, applications will be accepted from 11/1/11 to 2/29/12. Selections will be announced on or about May 1, 2012.
If you or interested Scouts have additional questions not answered on the web site or application, please contact me directly.
