The Community Foundation Scholarship Program offers four scholarships that are designated specifically or in part for Boy Scouts.

Eligibility for these scholarships is restricted to students with a permanent address* located within the Community Foundation service area, (includes the City of Aurora, Kendall County, and southern Kane County in the State of Illinois) and who will attend an accredited institution of higher education on a full-time basis during the 2015-2016 academic year.

*A person’s permanent address is defined as the address used for tax returns, voter’s registration, and other legal documents and correspondence.  It is most likely NOT that person’s address at school. For homeless students, parents, and families, or those living in transitional situations, this is the address at which these people can receive postal mail, such as a shelter or program.
