NOTE: An application for the Fellow Award must be completed and turned in only following final approval having been obtained for the Baltimore Area Council’s University of Scouting Doctorate degree; some requirements may only be met following the earning of the Doctorate degree.  Fellow Award applications will not be considered for the same calendar year class in which the applicant earned their Doctorate.  This simply means that an applicant cannot earn the Doctorate and Fellow Award in the same year.  The intent of the Fellow Award is to encourage recipients to apply their experience and knowledge as an experienced, post-graduate Scouter to further the goals of the University of Scouting.  Therefore, effort following the earning of the Doctorate must be applied in order to receive the Fellow Award.
