The Long Island Board of REALTORS®, Inc. (LIBOR) is now accepting REALTOR® Scouting Scholarship Award applications.  Through this program, LIBOR will be awarding up to six $1,000 merit-based Scholarships to three New York Eagle Scouts and three New York Gold Girl Scouts, who reside in Nassau, Suffolk or Queens county.. The scholarship is being sponsored through the LIBOR "We're More Than REALTORS®" Public Relations Campaign.

LIBOR is honored to affiliate ourselves with the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, whose goal is to build the character of young women, men, boys and girls, who then go on to become great citizens in our communities. Eagle Scout and the Girl Scout Gold Award are the highest rank and achievement attainable in the Scouting programs of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and the Girl Scouts of the USA. 

Since it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million young men have achieved the Boy Scouts of America's highest rank.  An Eagle Scout in his conduct and character exemplifies the highest standards, aims and ideals of Scouting.  Whether still active in Scouting or not, an Eagle Scout seeks to better himself in order to better serve others and his community.  The Girl Scout Gold Award debuted in 1916 as the Golden Eagle of Merit. It marked the beginning of a long tradition of recognizing the outstanding achievements of extraordinary girls.  The Girl Scout Gold Award has inspired girls to become leaders, and share their ideas and passions with their communities; leaving behind a sustainable legacy.

In the spirit of the “We’re More than REALTORS®” campaign, which supports numerous programs and charitable organizations, and encourages members to help make Long Island a better place to live; it only seems fitting to recognize these extraordinary individuals and to assist them in their pursuit of higher education.  For more information, including scholarship requirements and how to apply, please visit LIRealtor.com.
