The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization for Coast Guard personnel and their families, announced its 2020 scholarship program.

Children of active-duty, reserve and retired Coast Guard members can apply for scholarships, which range from $1,000 to $5,000, to fund undergraduate education. Applications will be accepted until March 15.

There also is a scholarship program for spouses. Eligibility guidelines and an application are available here.

The Coast Guard Foundation has paid out more than $5.4 million to college-aged young adults in the program’s 29-year history.

“The brave men and women of the Coast Guard community embody the highest level of professionalism and dedication to those they service,” Susan Ludwig, president of the Coast Guard Foundation, said in a statement. “The sacrifices these brave individuals and their families make for our way of life cannot be measured. We do what we can to help these families, and providing scholarships is our core method of support. We are proud that we awarded 128 scholarships last year and look forward to continuing to expand the program this year.”
