The Walter Scott Family Foundation believes in the power of leadership and education to transform lives and communities. We are committed to recognizing and supporting exceptional young men and women who embody the qualities of Eagle Scouts. The purpose of the NE Eagle Scout Scholarship is to provide a pathway to higher education and leadership opportunities for any qualified Scout. Walter Scott’s vision and commitment to empowering the next generation of leaders has made this scholarship possible. He credited Scouting and becoming an Eagle Scout as foundational to his character development and leadership success.
Success in life is the product of clear and unambiguous influences. One of the most important influences was the Boy Scouts of America. The instruction I received during Scouting in how to formulate, follow through with, and achieve concrete goals was a foundational experience in my personal journey to success.
