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.

Our 2014 Anchor Scholars are settling into college--on campus or off campus, freshman or upperclassmen, public or private college--we take heart knowing that we have made a difference in the lives of 44 Surface Navy dependents this year.  Overall, we have impacted the lives of more than 600 Surface Navy families with more than $600,000!

While they settle in and get their feet under them, we are busy working both coasts!  Our Inaugural ASF Golf Tournament  raised $5000, Tuesday nights at Societe Brewing Company netted over $800 and we are on the cusp of our biggest fundraiser--our 3rd Annual Anchor Scholarship Foundation Oyster Roast AND Auction.  You'll find information and links throughout our website (like the link in that last sentence!). 

Support our mission by supporting our events...please.  Scholarships truly make a difference!
