Scholarships

The Northeast Illinois Council wants to ensure that our Scouts can participate fully in our council-sponsored outdoor summer camp programs, by helping families meet the financial requirements for the program fees.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we can provide scholarships to assist our youth who need a little extra help on their path.

Please use this link for the 2019 Cub Scout and Scout BSA Scholarship Application. This application must be completed by a parent or legal guardian.  Any applications completed by unit leaders will be deleted from the system.

Cub Scout and Scout BSA Scholarship Application Information

DEADLINE:  The scholarship application must be completed online by April 2 (11:59PM) for NEIC Cub Scout Camps and Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation Camps.

Contact [email protected] if:

  • The Scout joined their Pack, Troop, or Crew after April 2, or if you missed this deadline for other valid reasons. There is a possibility the application will be reopened after April 2, but that will depend upon the amount of scholarship funds still available for this summer.
  • You have questions or concerns, need to amend answers after the initial submission

NYLT-EARLIER DEADLINE:  Because of the National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) course registration ends April 2 (11:59PM), NYLT scholarship applications must be completed online by March 21 (11:59PM).  Email the NYLT Coordinator about its submission, if you need an “final payment” extension, or for NYLT registration/payment instructions (contact info is on the NYLT Form).  The awarded scholarship amount will be forwarded to the NYLT coordinator and applied online toward the youth’s camp fees.

CONFIDENTIALITY:  All information on the scholarship application will be kept confidential.  If the Youth was registered by a unit leader, they will only be informed of the approved amount that will be applied online as a scholarship payment.

For more details, see the scholarship application itself.
