This scholarship is to be awarded to an Eagle Scout from Liberty County or an ETCF county accepted to or currently attending Texas A&M University.
The recipient must be a graduating high school senior or graduate of a public, private, or home school located in Liberty County, TX or one of ETCF’s East Texas counties.* Preference will be given to applicants from Liberty County.
