About the Coast Guard Foundation Spouse Grant Program:
For Coast Guard spouses, achieving higher education or professional licensing and certification boosts a family’s financial stability and gives them personal fulfillment. The Coast Guard Foundation offers grants to spouses so that they have everything they need to provide for their family and strengthen their well-being.

The Coast Guard Foundation spouse grant program makes a difference for hundreds of Coast Guard families every year. In 2019, a partnership with Delta Dental expanded our program offerings to support Coast Guard spouses pursuing specific degrees in the medical, oral health, and wellness professions.

Thank you so much for offering and providing such a great opportunity. This grant will help me finish school so I can join the workforce and give back to the community.
