Anchor Scholarship Foundation

Making College More Affordable for Our Surface Navy 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.
