The Byon M. Morris Scholarship will provide $5,000 ($1,250 per year for 4 years) to support tuition, books, fees, room and board, and degree-related expenses for two graduating seniors who have attained Scouting’s highest ranks.  One Eagle Scout (Boy Scouts) and one Gold Award winner (Girl Scouts), each of whom must demonstrate an aptitude and desire to succeed, will receive the scholarship.  In selecting the successful candidate, the review committee will consider academic achievements, leadership experience, desire for personal growth and financial need.  All applicants must have at least a cumulative 3.0 grade point average (weighted) and plan to attend an accredited post-secondary institution on a full-time basis. 

Housed at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, the Byon M. Morris Scholarship application and supporting documentation requirements are available at and due by March 16, 2020.
