Private and Foundation Scholarships

The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting
The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting offers two scholarships. The recipient for first place will receive $1,000 and the runner up will receive $500 upon acceptance to a four year accredited college or university. The candidates are evaluated on their involvement in their church, school, community, scholastic achievements, and Scouting.

Eligibility requirements

  • Have earned the Eagle Scout Award for boys or the Gold Award for girls.

  • Be an active member of an Eastern Orthodox Church and must have received the Alpha Omega Religious Scout Award.

Starting in 2005, the Russian Children’s Welfare Society, Inc, has funded an additional scholarship for $1,000 for a Scout who is of Russian descent and meets the above eligibility requirements.

The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting Scholarship Committee will award the three national scholarships to the recipients
who best meet the qualifications and not on a “need” basis. Applications can be obtained from E.O.C.S. Chairman, George N. Boulukos, 862 Guy Lombardo Avenue, Freeport, New York 11520 and they must be submitted by May 1st of each year. To contact,
