The Coast Guard Foundation is pleased to announce this year's awards of $142,500 in college scholarships to 46 children of enlisted Coast Guard personnel. Below are the names of the students, the type of scholarship they received, their home towns, the college they attend or plan on attending, and their area of study. The Coast Guard Foundation has 82 scholars that we are currently supporting for a total of $225,200.
This year marked the first time in many years that the Foundation was able to fund all of the requests from qualified students, a milestone that we are very proud of. We were able to reach this achievement thanks to some very generous anonymous donors. They were impressed with the quality of all the applicants, and donated $16,000 to make sure each one received a scholarship.
