At the Bartle Scout Reservation we offer college scholarships for staff
members. They are able to be renewed, I think, for continued service on
staff. We just got another scholarship endowed this year. I believe (any
HOAers out there correct me if I am wrong) that the Tribe of Mic-O-Say was
instrumental in getting these scholarships going and that there are now
three such scholarships.
I have been trying to work with a district level scouting endownment that
we have here in Pelathe District to give salary supplements from any scout
district that serves on staff at one of our council camps. I've not yet
gotten that committment.
In our troop, we give any scout who serves on staff a $50 stipend to help
defray uniform costs.
