About NESA

The National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) helps Eagle Scouts stay in touch with Scouting and hear positive stories about how Scouting transforms the lives of youth through developing their leadership skills, character, citizenship, and physical fitness. NESA is also an outlet for alumni to network and collaborate with one another, which may include increasing business connections and participating in service to the BSA or other organizations.


The 2020 NESA scholarships have been awarded to 53 deserving Eagles. Over 4,000 scholarship applications were submitted to NESA last fall. The field was very competitive and we thank each applicant.

“Eagle Scouts are one of our country’s greatest resource for good.”

– Frank Tsuru, President of the National Eagle Scout Association
