The nonprofit Coast Guard Foundation, which has given more than $6 million in funding since it was founded in 1990, this year awarded 167 scholarships at a value of $503,000.

Recipients include Cierra DeCuire, a Texas high school graduate; Landis Limon, a North Carolina high school graduate; Quentin Ramos, who will study at the Rochester Institute of Technology; and Alejandro Romero of Puerto Rico.

“We are honored to provide support to Coast Guard youth who are pursuing their higher education goals,” Coast Guard Foundation president Susan Ludwig said in a statement. “When Coast Guard kids receive a Coast Guard Foundation scholarship, they incur less debt and deepen their engagement with their communities by volunteering, working and interning in their chosen fields of study.”
