Scouter/Scout Financial Assistance Request     


Sam Houston Area Council


Financial assistance is available to assist Scouters or Scouts, registered in Sam Houston Area Council, who would like to participate in the Council’s leadership training courses – Wood Badge or NYLT.  Financial assistance is funded by donations collected at the annual Baden-Powell Fellowship Dinner.  Since these donations are limited, financial assistance funding is also limited.  A 50% (maximum) of the course fee may be awarded per Scouter or Scout and will be credited towards their registration fee.


Financial assistance is awarded based on financial need and requests are kept in strict confidence.


Financial Assistance Request Application Process

  1. Register for desired course (NYLT or Wood Badge) session in Doubleknot.  Choose the mailbox option in the checkout screen.  During this process, pay at least the required deposit of 10% (if Wood Badge) of the course fee in order to reserve your spot on the course.
  2. Complete this online financial assistance request application.
  3. Once the application is completed online, it will be forwarded to the Wood Badge and NYLT Financial Assistance Request fund for consideration.
  4. The volunteer committee usually responds within two business days.  If the committee needs additional information, you will be contacted directly by one of the volunteers on the committee.
  5. Once a decision has been made, you will be notified by email from Support Services of the status of your request, and how to pay the remaining balance.

Thank you for your interest in participating in advanced Scout training!
