Investing in U.S. Surface Navy Families through Higher Education Scholarships!

You Can Help.

Meet our 2021 Recipients!


Freedom is not’s paid for in the sacrifice of the extraordinary men and women defending our nation. Service members do not bear this responsibility alone. Their families face unique challenges during frequent deployments, moves and multiple schools. All families face hard challenges, but military family challenges redefine hard.

Anchor Scholarship Foundation recognizes the impressive accomplishments of these families. Since 1980, more than $1,300,000 in scholarships have been awarded to more than 1,200 eligible family members. 

These scholarships go beyond just mitigating the cost for a college education, they validate the hard work dedication and sacrifice of some amazing people.

Anchor scholarships are awarded based upon an equal weighting of academic performance, character, extracurricular activities and financial need. Endowed and administered scholarships have additional criteria; not every applicant is eligible for every endowed or administered scholarship. There are several different types of scholarships; all of which can be applied for with ONE scholarship
