Anchor Scholarship Foundation

making college more affordable for our Surface Navy families



The Anchor Scholarship Foundation provides scholarships to eligible dependents (children and spouses) of active duty or retired 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.  Recipients must be pursuing a 4 year degree (BA or BS) at a college or university in the United States.

Societe Brewing

(San Diego, CA!!) will donate a portion of their receipts to Anchor Scholarship.

We will have ASF reps available to answer questions.  The first 25 people each night will receive a 'coveted'
ASF cup clip!

Anchor Scholarship is heading WEST!  Don't worry, we won't be abandoning our EAST coast families.  Better still--we will have representation on BOTH coasts.

Danielle Dawley, our Executive Director, will be moving to San Diego with her Active Duty husband in July. Ingrid Turner, our Director of Operations, joined the Foundation in February and will 'anchor' the EAST coast.

Since 2004, when the SURFLANT scholarship was rechartered as the Anchor Scholarship Foundation, we became a national scholarship.  Until now, everything was done from the East Coast--scholarship administration, event planning, corporate outreach and fundraising.

This shift will enable us to continue our efforts to grow the Foundation physically AND fiscally!  We look forward to working with our WEST coast Surface Navy families and San Diego area businesses.
