Scholarships for Eagle Scouts

Being an Eagle Scout can carry some weight on college/post-secondary admission forms and scholarship applications. In addition, some scholarships exist for the sole purpose of helping an Eagle Scout further his education.

The scholarships are made possible by a generous gift by Byron Lockhart. Mr. Lockhart was born in 1917. He grew up in Waco, where he would earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Later, he attended Baylor University, earning an undergraduate and law degree. After working for the F.B.I. for six years, Mr. Lockhart began a successful career in Austin as an attorney. The lessons he learned as an Eagle Scout were so meaningful to him that he donated funds for Eagle Scouts to pursue a post-secondary education.
