Coast Guard Foundation announces 2020 scholarship opportunities

Applications will be accepted Feb. 1 through March 15

The Coast Guard Foundation, a nonprofit committed to the education and well-being of Coast Guard members and their families, has announced its 2020 scholarship opportunities.

Applications from children of Coast Guard members will be accepted from Feb. 1 through March 15. Children may apply for annual scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to fund undergraduate education. Scholarships are available to children of Coast Guard members who are active duty, active duty reserve, and retired.

All applicants will use the online application hosted by CGF. All interested members should check eligibility guidelines at coastguardfoundation.org/apply. Over the last five years, CGF has awarded an average of $400,000 in scholarships. In the 29 years of the program, the foundation has paid out over $5.4 million to more than 1,100 college-aged young adults.

“The brave men and women of the Coast guard community embody the highest level of professionalism and dedication to those they serve,” CGF President Susan Ludwig said. “The sacrifices these brave individuals and their families make for our way of life cannot be measured.”

“We do what we can to help these families and providing scholarships is our core method of support. We are proud that we awarded 128 scholarships last year and look forward to continuing to expand the program this year.”
