2017 William “Green Bar Bill” Hillcourt Scholarship

William “Green Bar Bill” Hillcourt, author of the Handbook for Patrol Leaders and America’s first Wood Badge Scoutmaster, was the father of BSA youth leader training. Very few experiences develop servant leadership as effectively as service on the Order of the Arrow National Jamboree staff. With that in mind, the “Green Bar Bill” Hillcourt Foundation and the Order of the Arrow will award a limited number of scholarships to assist youth Arrowmen committed to serving the OA and Scouting as members of the national jamboree Order of the Arrow staff. Youth Arrowmen who wish to apply for a scholarship should forward this completed application to the national service center at the address listed below by December 31, 2016. The amount of the scholarship will be a maximum of $250. Recipients will be selected from amongst applicants based on merit and need. Each recipient chosen will be notified by January 31, 2017 and the scholarship amount will be applied toward the 2017 National Jamboree staff fee.
