We are proud to announce the Coast Guard Foundation is awarding 128 new scholarships in 2019, totaling $354,000 in support. Our scholarship program began in 1990 and has provided over $5.4 million in financial assistance to Coast Guard children ensuring they can afford to reach their higher education dreams.

The children of the brave men and women of the Coast Guard consistently demonstrate a focused dedication to their studies and desire to give back to their communities. These scholarships are an investment in the development of the next generation of leaders. The future of our country will be determined by these young adults. We are proud to assist them get the education they desire.

Susan P. Ludwig, president, Coast Guard Foundation

Awardees include scholars such as Jenna Murphy. Jenna is a 3.9 GPA student from New York who earned her Bronze, Silver and Gold Girl Scout Awards, having been a member of the Girl Scouts for 13 years and devoting more than 150 hours of community service. In addition, Murphy served as a math tutor, held student government leadership positions and is a three-sport athlete. Murphy also developed and implemented a program to help local teenagers reduce stress in a healthy way, conducted soccer clinics for younger players and ran a fundraiser that helped donate sports equipment to families in need.

Caroline Cutter is the daughter of a 27-year Coast Guard veteran and a resident of Massachusetts. Cutter was actively involved in varsity field hockey, ice hockey and lacrosse during her high school years. She also found time to serve as a peer mentor and participated in several clubs, while also holding a leadership role on the Student Activity Board where she helped run special activities for her fellow classmates and school community. While maintaining a busy extra-curricular and athletic schedule, Cutter graduated with a 4.0+ GPA with a challenging course-load of AP classes. Last summer, she participated in a four-week internship at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, California. She plans to play club-level hockey in college. Enrolling in Middlebury College in the fall, she’ll pursue a degree in computer science with a strong interest in cyber-security.

Cheyanna Slack started her high school career in Guilford, Connecticut, and then moved to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Music was an important connector for her in both locations and, in addition to being involved with many community service projects and fundraisers, she established a mentorship program with high school music students and their middle school counterparts. The program has given both the high school and middle school students an opportunity to grow and gain confidence.

We are honored yet again this year to provide extensive financial support to so many Coast Guard children. For more on the Coast Guard Foundation’s scholarship program, the Fallen Heroes Fund and the support given to Coast Guard members and their families, please view this video:
