Each year we awarded 1 or more Cradle of Liberty Eagle Scout Scholarships to Eagle Scouts who were selected as the most deserving.

We know how much of a difference this scholarship can make in a young person’s life as they work to further their studies. We believe that there are many Eagle Scouts who could also use some financial assistance to help them pursue their studies in college or technical school.

We hope that you will help us to support these deserving young men and women.

Thanks so much for your support, and all that you do for Scouting!
