No, Scouts or Units cannot opt-out of Trail’s End Rewards to contribute to their Scholarship. The Scholarship program is being replaced with the enhanced Trail’s End Rewards program that has a higher claim rate and rewards Scouts sooner than ever before, therefore no NEW scholarships after March 31, 2020 will be accepted.

With that said, Scouts accepted into the Scholarship Program for any calendar year ending on or before December 31, 2019 will be eligible to have 4% of their Qualified Sales in calendar years 2020, 2021 and 2022 count towards their own Trail's End Scholarship.
