$20,000 scholarship ($5,000/up to 4 years)

Established through the Anchor Scholarship Foundation, Raytheon funded a $125,000 endowment to support an ongoing program to provide a renewable scholarship to students pursuing a four-year degree in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related field.

Candidates must be a dependent child (high school senior) of a U.S. Navy Surface Force service member - officer or enlisted; active duty, retired or honorably discharged.

The recipient will receive a $20,000 scholarship ($5000/year in pursuit of a 4 year degree) provided eligibility requirements are met each year (degree focus, sustained 3.0 GPA, etc.).


$2,400 annual scholarship

Established with an endowment of $60,000 by the family of  VADM John D. Bulkeley, USN (Ret) to honor him and the ship that bears his name, USS Bulkeley (DDG-84). 

Candidates must be a dependent child or spouse of a USS Bulkeley crew member--past or present, officer or enlisted.


Endowments begin at $60,000 which will yield a $2,400 scholarship. Scholarship endowments may be made in one lump sum or amortized over 1-4 years. Disbursements from endowments cannot be made until a minimum of $60,000 has been endowed.  ASF will gladly advertise a new endowment via newsletter, website and social media, but will not actively fundraise for the endowment.

Endowed scholarships provide the donor opportunities to

  • establish the scholarship as a renewable or annual scholarship
  • require additional selection criteria is met during selection (for example-command dependent, officer dependent, enlisted dependent, STEM student)
