Wayne and Ruth Diehl Scholarship

Each year several Eagle Scouts from Blackhawk Area Council are honored with the Wayne and Ruth Diehl Scholarship. The award is designed to aid Eagle Scouts within the local council to prepare themselves educationally for their chosen life’s work. This is a one-time, non-renewable scholarship to be used for tuition, books, and/or other college expenses or training beyond high school.
