Education support for Coast Guard spouses is an important part of what we do at the Coast Guard Foundation. Scholarships and grants for Coast Guard spouses provide opportunity for a college education, professional licensing and certifications.
Spouses who complete a degree or earn their own income strengthen families by not only creating financial stability, but through finding the sense of fulfillment, confidence and happiness that comes with personal achievement.
