Let's start with the Silver Wolf and work backwards.
The Silver Wolf Award is an international award, presented once every
four years to Scouters whom are members of the World Association of
Scouting Movements (WOSM). The BSA is a member of the WOSM. The
award is presented to six individuals "whom demostrate by their long
service or exceptional achievements over a period of time to the
The Silver World Award is an international award, presented through
the International Division of the BSA to just about anyone *outside*
of BSA members that our National officers want. Here's the "requirements"
"The Award may be presented to citizens of any country whose Scout
association is a member of the World Scout Conference, in recognition
of his or her service of exceptional character to the youth of his or
her own country or on an international basis. The receipent does NOT
have to be a member of a Scout association. U.S. citizens may recieve
the Silver World Award for international service to youth provided
they are NOT registered members of the Boy Scouts of America.
Approved awards may be presented by an authorized member of the Boy
Scouts of America either by a personal visit with the recipient or at
an official meeting of a national Scout association, including the
BSA. Designation of recipients of the Silver World Award, by
authority of the International Committee, is delegated to the
President of the BSA, the Chief Scout Executive of the BSA, the
International Commissioner, BSA, and the Chair of the International
Division. The Award may be granted upon the concurrance of any three
of the above. Awards may be made at any time on behalf of the
International Committee and the National Executive Board. The
International Committee receives a full report of the Silver World
Award designation at each meeting and will maintain accumulative
records of awards including supporting data."

Hope this helps out. I personally know of a now BSA member that
received one of the first Silver World Awards for his service with
Danish and German Scouts over a five year period while he was a
graduate student with a university in North Carolina. He was a
Private in the Army, and later served as Outdoors Director for the
Garmisch Armed Forces Recreation Area.
Richard was also one of my Assistant Scoutmasters and made me look
great in my first overseas Scoutmaster experience!
