Scholarship Description

Freedom is not free…it’s paid for in the sacrifice of the extraordinary men and women defending our nation. Service members do not bear this responsibility alone. Their families face unique challenges during frequent deployments, multiple moves and schools. All families face hard challenges, but military family challenges redefine hard. Anchor Scholarship Foundation recognizes the impressive accomplishments of these families. Since 1980, more than $1,400,000 in scholarships have been awarded to more than 1,200 eligible family members.
