A new 2017 Eagle Scout Rank Application has been released. For the most part, the application is very similar to the 2016 printing, with minor changes to language and format. You can tell if you have the new application form by looking at the bottom right corner of page 2. It should say “April 2017 Printing.” The Eagle Scout Rank Application that you download from this website (or from Scouting.Org) is now the 2017 version.
If you have already started your Eagle Scout Rank Application with the 2016 printing, it can still be submitted until the end of this year. The 2017 printing must be used beginning on January 1, 2018.
Oh, the possibilities!”
