Inspired by the true story of Jesse Brown and Tom Hudner, the Brown Hudner Navy Scholarship Foundation aims to honor Navy Sailors by providing post-secondary scholarship support to their children. Scholarship awards are based on a competitive scholarship model, and applicants must meet all eligibility requirements and complete an application with supporting documents. Recipients are required to maintain eligibility and renew their scholarship each year but are only required to submit a comprehensive application the first year they are awarded.
To be eligible to apply, an applicant must; be a child of an active duty, reserve, honorably discharged, or fallen U.S. Navy Sailor; have a GPA of at least 2.0 (cumulative and unweighted on a 4.0 scale); have a family adjusted gross income less than the limit based on the annual Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy’s salary; and be planning to pursue a STEM or health science degree and attend an accredited undergraduate college or career training school in the upcoming academic year. Each scholarship recipient is eligible for four paid awards, and awards do not need to be awarded in consecutive years.
Brown Hudner Navy Scholarship Foundation is not accepting new applications for the 2024-25 academic year; only renewal applications will be considered. Our scholarship application opens every year on January 1 and closes on March 1.
