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.
Freedom is not free. It is paid for with the sacrifices of the extraordinary men and women defending our nation. However, these service members do not bear this responsibility alone. Their families face unique challenges brought on by frequent moves and new schools and multiple deployments. Certainly, all families face hard challenges; but those faced by military families redefines hard.
Taking on surmountable college debt should not be one of these challenges. For over 40 years, Anchor Scholarship Foundation has served its mission to “make college more affordable for U.S. Surface Navy families.” This is why, since our inception, we have awarded over $1,300,000 in scholarships to over 1,200 eligible family members.
Anchor scholarships are awarded based upon an equal weighting of academic performance, character, extracurricular activities and financial need. These scholarships go beyond just mitigating the cost for a college education; they validate the hard work, dedication and sacrifices of our amazing Navy family members.
There are several different types of scholarships; all of which can be applied for with ONE scholarship application:
Scholarship: $2,750 Annual Anchor Scholarship sponsored by Leonardo DRS
College: Yale University
Major: History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health
