Scholarships for Eagle Scouts

Lockhart Eagle Scout Scholarships

NOTE: only for Scouts who earned the rank of Eagle in Capitol Area Council

The scholarships are made possible by a generous gift by Byron Lockhart. Mr. Lockhart was born in 1917. He grew up in Waco, Texas where he would earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Later, he attended Baylor University, earning an undergraduate and law degree. After working for the F.B.I. for six years, Mr. Lockhart began a successful career in Austin as an attorney. The lessons he learned as an Eagle Scout were so meaningful to him that he donated funds for Eagle Scouts to pursue a post-secondary education.
