Eagle Palms

 

This week, the BSA announced significant changes to the way Scouts earn Eagle Palms.

The modifications take effect Aug. 1, 2017.

The changes bring Eagle Palm requirements in line with the needs of older Scouts. The National Boy Scouting Subcommittee has eliminated unnecessary obstacles, such as the Eagle Palm board of review, and expanded the definition of active participation.

But the biggest change affects young men who haven’t yet earned Eagle. Beginning Aug. 1, all earned Palms may be awarded instantly to new Eagle Scouts at their Eagle court of honor. This abolishes the wait of months or years for these young men to receive all Palms available to them.
For a closer look at what’s changing, see Scouting magazine's "Bryan on Scouting" blog.

 Eagle Scouts can apply for these scholarships until Oct. 31, 2017
