Pathfinder District Eagle Candidates

Scheduling an Eagle Board of Review

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 MUST 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 required signature and 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

  • 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.
  • An email will be sent to the Scout that confirms the date, time and location of the Eagle board and provides information regarding what must be brought to the Eagle Board.
  • Page E of the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook needs to must be signed by the benefiting organization representative, the unit Leader and a unit committee member.
  • 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) pages that describes the project. Also bring all originals and any other support material, diagrams or pictures.

We encourage the Scoutmaster or another unit leader to attend 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.  In Scoutbook, they just go to the “Reports” section on the Scout’s homepage in Scoutbook and then click “Eagle Application”.

The following documents must be taken to the Council office:

  • Eagle Scout Application with signature from the unit leader and unit committee.
  • Twenty-one (21) merit badge cards that are listed on the Eagle Scout application.  The new merit badge Citizenship in Society is required effective July 1, 2022.  Note: Merit badge cards are not needed if the Scout's unit uses Scoutbook and all merit badge info on the Eagle Scout Application matches Scoutbook.
  • A Statement of Ambitions and Life Purpose.
  • Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook
  • 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 must have the Eagle Application signed by the Council.

The Scout MUST contact Sandy Balch, Eagle Board Chair, at (314) 660-3960.  If you leave a message, please speak slowing and give your name, troop number and phone number.

An email will be sent to the Scout that confirms the date, time and location of the Eagle board and provides information regarding what must be brought to the Eagle Board.

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:

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

We encourage the Scoutmaster or another unit leader to attend with the Scout.

Important Information Regarding Eagle Scout Time Extension Request

The Council has the authority to grant limited extensions of time to complete requirements. Extension requests will be reviewed locally rather than through the national office.

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

Extensions approved under the COVID-19 authority remain valid until their deadline date.

Any new or additional time requests will have to be submitted using the current process.

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.
