Anchor Scholarship Foundation

Making College More Affordable for Surface Navy Families

2016 Scholarship award ceremony

Recipients from Anchor, Dolphin and Wings Over America scholarship foundations were recognized at a luncheon sponsored by Navy League, Hampton Roads on June 8th in Virginia Beach. The luncheon was the culmination of a lot of hard work on many fronts-the recipients that excel, the donors that believe in our missions and the foundations that work tirelessly to reduce debt for military families.


The Anchor Scholarship Foundation provides scholarships to eligible family members (children and spouses) of active duty,  retired or honorably discharged Surface Navy personnel.

Recipients are selected on the basis of four equally weighted criteria:
  • academic performance
  • character
  • extracurricular
  • financial need

Anchor Scholarships MUST be applied to tuition and tuition related expenses only. 

Dependent children must be pursuing a 4 year degree (BA or BS) at a 4 year college or university in the United States.

Dependent spouses may be pursuing an Associates, BA or BS at a 2 or 4 year college or university in the United States.  Anchor Scholarships cannot be used to fund Graduate degrees.
