Eagle Scout scholarships
December 4, 2015
MacMurray College wants Eagle Scouts to join the Mac Family. MacMurray recognizes that Eagle Scouts will greatly benefit the College as active and engaged leaders of the campus community.
To encourage such leaders to attend MacMurray, those who are accepted to the College and have attained the rank of Eagle Scout from the Boy Scouts of America automatically receive a $10,000 per year Tartan Leadership Scholarship. Eagle Scouts who qualify for that scholarship or any of the other MacMurray Academic Achievement Scholarships will have their scholarship moved up one level.
Apply by March 15 for full consideration of your scholarship.
For example, if an Eagle Scout qualifies for a $15,000 per year Dean’s Achievement Scholarship, he would receive a $17,500 per year Trustee Achievement Scholarship. These awards are regardless of need; applicants may also qualify for federal and state need-based aid or private scholarships.
There is no additional application or essay. An Eagle Scout applicant to MacMurray – either through the Common Application or the MacMurray application – automatically qualifies for the scholarship. Applicants will receive a confirmation of their level of scholarship along with their acceptance letter.
MacMurray College is located in friendly and safe Jacksonville, IL, a college town of 25,000 located 35 miles west of the state Capitol of Springfield, 90 miles north of St. Louis and within 250 miles of Chicago and Indianapolis.
