Delta Dental Coast Guard Foundation Spouse Scholarship

Being a recipient of Coast Guard Foundation Spouse Scholarship means more than I can truly put into words. Being a military spouse means that I have to put my career on hold to meet the demands of the Coast Guard.

With the help of this scholarship, I am able to continue my education even with the newest addition to our family coming this fall. I do not feel the financial burden from tuition that normally comes with schooling.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to continue my interests in education, and the opportunity to grow my career.
