The Orange County Council Silver Beaver Alumni Association (SBAA) makes every effort to award financial aid for training opportunities when circumstances warrant it. The vast majority of resources are dedicated to families with financial need. However, on a case by-case basis depending on resource availability there may be a limited allocation based on merit. The SBAA Committee reviews each application in strict confidentiality and makes scholarship allocation decisions based on the information you provide in this application. All families are strongly encouraged to check their local community agencies for scholarships in addition to those that may be provided by the SBAA. Many organizations offer scholarships for youth educational and leadership experiences. These include Faith Based Organizations, fraternal organizations, (VFW, ELKS, F&AM, LIONS, Troop, etc.)
Scholarship applications must be properly completed. They must be submitted to the Orange County Council SBAA no later than 1 month prior to the training or program. Please note that all scholarship applications require submission of the family’s combined annual income. Scholarship decisions cannot be made without the statement of family income.
