The Coast Guard Foundation Scholarship Season is open and live until March 15.  The Coast Guard Foundation has moved the returning/renewal application online, and first-time applicants will also complete an online application to be considered for a scholarship award, ranging from $1,000-$5,000 to help pay for college tuition and other expenses.

Complete eligibility requirements can be found here: or here:

The first-time application requires transcripts, letters of recommendation and Coast Guard verification – please encourage students and families to give themselves extra time to complete this application as it is dependent on others submitting information via the online application form.


The Coast Guard Foundation has reached out to students who received a scholarship award last year to encourage them to complete the returning student application.  They have also partnered with other Coast Guard serving organizations to share the news and application process.


Any and all questions regarding Coast Guard Foundation scholarships should directed directly to them at (860)535-0786 or
