The new NESA Legacy Society Fellowship is open to any currently registered youth or adult Scouter who has been recognized as a James E. West Fellow and makes a contribution to the NESA endowment. The NESA endowment provides direct funding of Eagle Scout scholarships, NESA Committee service grants, and career networking and encouragement for all Scouts who wear the Eagle Scout badge. All contributions to the national NESA endowment should be in addition to regular support of your council’s fundraising programs. A downloadable form can be found here .
On the Eagle Application there are two sets of required merit badges from which you can choose to do one from each group (Emergency Preparedness or Lifesaving; and Cycling or Hiking or Swimming). Both Star and Life ranks allow you to use two from one group, like using Cycling and Swimming as two required merit badges for your Star rank. If you have done this, make sure you select one as the required merit badge (cross out badges not used in items #6 and #9 of the application) and list the other required merit badge as a non-required merit badge (in one of the spaces numbered 13-21).
