Eagle Palm Questions

I have a question about Eagle Palm Requirements:
One of my troop’s scouts has earned 10 merit badges in the 3 month window needed to earn a palm. Can he earn both a bronze and a gold palm in this 3 months or can he only earn the bronze this time and wait another 3 months to get the gold?

if already an Eagle - then it is one palm I believe

For each Palm, the Scout must: 1) be active in Scouting for three months after becoming an Eagle Scout (or after earning the last Palm) …

per Scouting FAQ: Eagle Palms - Scouting magazine, September 2020.

Look forward to his 3 months of demonstrating leadership and scout sprit to earn his gold palm!


Note 15 says:

15 Eagle Palms must be earned in sequence, and the three-month tenure requirement must be observed for each Palm.
