The Coast Guard Foundation’s 2019 scholarship season is now open for children of active duty, retired, or active duty reserve U.S. Coast Guard members. Applications can be submitted through March 15 with awards ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.

In the 28 years of this program, the Coast Guard Foundation has paid out $5 million to more than 960 college-aged young adults to help the families of Coast Guard members achieve their goals of higher education.

After the success of last year’s scholarship program, we are excited to continue supporting these young men and women. We are honored to invest in the families of our service members and award them for their academic success and voluntary service in their communities.

In 2018, our scholarship investment reached 182 Coast Guard children totaling $500,000. We awarded a record-breaking 177 new scholarships, combined with three multi-year scholarship recipients, and two Fallen Heroes Scholars whose education is covered entirely by our Fallen Heroes program.
