Eagle Project $$$ Help
Eagle Project Grant Do you know of any Life Scouts needing building materials and equipment for their Eagle projects this year? There's help available to pay for it and it would be a shame to let the resource go unused.

Lowe's has a grant program this year that allows councils to distribute $100 prepaid gift cards to Life Scouts to use on their Eagle projects. The cards may be accepted at other building material stores than just Lowe's, so don't let that stop a scout from applying.

Scouts need to plan their project, complete and submit an application to their council, and hope there are grants left. Maybe contacting the council service center first to ensure the council is participating and has grants left would be a good idea.

It all wraps up on December 31, 2012, to here's yet another reason to get that project done now rather than later.

There's a page on the BSA site with More Info, including an application form.

Scout On.

I am a boy scout in San Diego, California. I recently completed my eagle scout project and it went great. My scoutmaster told me about this grant and I applied for it and was accepted. Lowes gave me an $100 gift card and I used it to get some of the materials I needed. I hope other scouts can benefit from this grant.
