Maybe this will help,
Back when I was a scout, I spoke at a fundraising dinner and
mentioned my hopes to attend a four year university. Afterwards, I was
approached by a man very involved in Boy Scouting, who asked me which
It just so happened, the one I mentioned was a local expensive
university- and he just happened to be on the board...
He said he had talked them into an Eagle scholarship already, and
asked if we Sea Explorers had an equivalent. I described the
Quartermaster Award, and he told me that if I reached that goal, and still
wanted to attend this college, that I should write to the board. He said
he would be happy to talk them into matching their Eagle Scholarship for a
QM. If you know where you want to go, you might try this...
Also, have you asked your local council? Even a list of colleges that
offer to Eagles might raise your odds since they already support scouting.
Good luck! :) the other katie
