Anchor Scholarship Foundation exists to make college more affordable for Surface Navy families. It’s an investment in deserving scholars and everything that they will bring to our communities, to this country and to the world.

In 1980, the SURFLANT Scholarship Foundation was chartered by the Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet Officer’s Wives Club to provide financial assistance to 

qualified dependents of current and former members of the Naval Surface Forces, Atlantic.

Through increased donations over the years, the support of Fleet personnel, and  successful fundraising efforts and events, the Foundation has grown from four $500 scholarships awarded in 1981 to 34 scholarships totaling over $106,000 this past year. With its growth and success, the time had come to expand the Foundation to include the Naval Surface Forces, Pacific, which did not have a similar scholarship program.  

On July 1, 2004 the SURFLANT Scholarship Foundation was rechartered to encompass 

both commands and provide scholarship opportunities for all Naval Surface Force 

dependents. And so it became the Anchor Scholarship Foundation.

​With Directors in Hampton Roads, DC Region, Rhode Island, Boston, New York City, Ohio, Hawaii, and San Diego, we are engaged in and advocating for our Surface Navy community across the country.

 Anchor Scholarship Foundation Serves the Surface Navy Community
