  • Type you Application so it can be read.
  • Use Scoutbook to pre-fill your application information already in Scoutbook.
  • Anyone can file your Eagle Application with the Council Service Center, however the Eagle Candidate is ultimately responsible for filing the application before and after the Board of Review.
  • Your name on the application will be how your name appears on your Eagle Certificate.   
  • Don’t send your Eagle Workbook or Reference Letters to the Council Service Center. Send them to the District Advancement Member so designated.
