Pathfinder District Eagle Candidates


Extensions of Time for Eagle Rank

Council has the authority to grant an extension of time for a Scout to complete the Eagle Scout Rank past the age of 18.    If a Scout finds that due to no fault or choice of his or her own, it will be impossible to complete the Eagle Scout rank requirements before age 18, the Scout may apply to the Council for a limited time extension. These extensions will only be granted when necessary and are reserved only for work on Eagle. When a time extension is requested, the Scout would continue working on the requirements until a final decision from Council is received.  Scouts will only grant enough time to complete the requirements, but not more than a total of six months after the 18th birthday. Under most circumstance, three to four months has been sufficient time. At this time, a request must meet the three tests listed below to be approved

  1. The member joined or rejoined (or became active again after a period of inactivity, or became refocused on advancement after a period of inattention) in time to complete all requirements before turning 18.
  2.  Through no fault or choice of the Scout, an unforeseen circumstance or life changing event with severe consequences has come to exist that now precludes completion of the requirements before the deadline.
  3. The circumstance is beyond the control of the Scout, could not have been anticipated or planned for, and was not or cannot be resolved in time to complete the requirements.

The Scout may file such requests. “Request for Extension of Time to Earn the Eagle Scout Rank” (place link) may be used for this purpose.  Council will research and evaluate the request and recommend the decision to the Scout executive. A letter will be sent either granting or denying the request.  Requests for time extensions must be submitted to a council’s service center in person, electronically, or by mail. Please follow this link to see the guidelines on Extensions. www.scouting.org/advancement.

Scheduling an Eagle Board of Review

The Eagle Boards of Review are scheduled for the 2nd Thursday and 4th Monday of each month at  Mt. Zion United Methodist Church, 1485 Craig Rd., St Louis MO 63146 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.  To schedule a Board of Review date and time, the Scout will need to contact Sandy Balch at (314) 660-3960.  The call must be at least 5 days prior to the expected Board of Review date to schedule an appointment.  It is important that the Scout has all material prepared for the meeting.  It is also important that the Scoutmaster or another unit leader attends the Board of Review with the Eagle Scout candidate.

Scheduling a Project Proposal Review

  1. The Scout will need to make sure that they are using the most current Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook. It is linked to the National site HERE.
  2. The service project should be helpful to any religious institution, any school or your community. The project must benefit an organization other that the Boy Scouts of America.
  3. Page E of the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook needs to be reviewed and signed by the benefiting organization representative, the unit Leader and a unit committee member.
  4. The Scout must not start the project until receiving the approval from the Eagle Board of Review. The Board members will sign the proposal signifying approval.

The Scout needs to bring copies of the following from the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook to the Board of Review: Two (2) copies of the Contact Information page and the following three (3) that describes the project. Also bring all originals and any other support material, diagrams or pictures.

We encourage the Scoutmaster or another unit leader attends with the Scout.

Submitting the Eagle Scout Application to Council

Ensure that the Scout is using the most current Eagle Scout Application, found HERE.

If the Scout’s troop uses Scoutbook, they can easily download a prefilled Eagle Scout application form with all their data.  All they will need to add are their references, leadership position and signatures.  They just go to the “Reports” section on the Scout’s homepage in Scoutbook and then click “Eagle Application”.

The following documents should be taken to the Council office:

  1. Eagle Scout Application with signature from the unit leader and unit committee.
  2. Twenty-one (21) merit badge cards that are listed on the Eagle Scout application.
  3. A Statement of Ambitions and Life Purpose.
  4. Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook
  5. Five letters of recommendations sealed in envelopes (letters should match the references on Requirement #2 of your Eagle Scout Applications).

Scheduling the Final Eagle Board of Review

Before scheduling an appointment, the Scout should have the Eagle Application signed by the Council.

The Scout needs to bring to the Eagle Board ALL ORIGINALS, the five (5) letters in sealed envelopes, and pictures, diagrams or other support material.  Also bring two (2) copies of the following:

  1. The Eagle Scout Application
  2. Statement of Ambitions and Life Purpose
  3. The completed Eagle Scout Service Project report (the last section of the workbook)

We encourage the Scoutmaster or another unit leader attends with the Scout.
