The Mother Lode Chapter recognizes Eagle Scouts through "SAR Certificates of Recognition" at BSA Courts of Honor and also participates in the NSSAR Arthur M. & Berdena King Eagle Scout Scholarship program.
Qualified Eagle Scouts participating in the scholarship program compete for the Chapter's scholarship. By winning the Chapter contest, they receive the Chapter's scholarship award and are submitted with the entries from other California Chapters to the California Society's contest. The State Society's winning entry is submitted for the National competition. Monetary scholarships are awarded at the Chapter, State and National levels. Chapter winners also receive the SAR Eagle Scout Medal.
