Children of Coast Guard Members

Our scholarship investments allow more Coast Guard children to attend college and honor both active duty and retired families for their service.

If you are the child of an active duty, retired, or active reserve Coast Guard member you are eligible to apply. For this year's scholarship cycle, successful applicants can expect awards ranging between $2,500 to $5,000.

When we began the scholarship program in 1990, we focused on one goal — providing Coast Guard families the opportunity to send their children to college. Since that time, the cost of higher education has skyrocketed, making our original aspiration even more relevant for today’s Coast Guard families.

We're proud to report our scholarship program is impacting more families than at any time in our history. These scholars are among the best and brightest displaying not only outstanding academic achievement but also the characteristics befitting of the Coast Guard’s core values.
