The E. Urner Goodman
The Recognitions and Awards subcommittee
of the National Order of the Arrow Committee
is pleased to announce the selection of four recipients of the
E. Urner Goodman Scholarship. The purpose of the E. Urner
Goodman Scholarship program
is to assist Arrowmen preparing for a professional Scouting
career by helping to fulfill
the financial obligations of their college education.
E. Urner Goodman, founder of the Order of the Arrow,
was a teacher before entering the
professional service of the Boy Scouts of America in 1915.
This program was established as

needed financial resources that will perpetuate continued
individuals dedicated to professional Scouting service.
