The Scholarship Program

The application deadline for the 2021-2022 academic year has now passed. Thank you to all who applied for consideration. Students will be notified of their awards near the end of June.

The sacrifices our Special Operations and their families make are immeasurable. The Navy SEAL Museum is humbled to have committed partners who come alongside our families and help support the higher and private education of these kids through our Trident House Charities Scholarship Program.

Comprised of four tenants, the Trident House Charities Program seeks to serve Special Operations by addressing their needs and the needs of their families. One arm of this outreach is our Scholarship Program. Made possible by the generous donations of caring benefactors like yourselves, The Museum’s Scholarship Program offers gifts in various amounts to the children of Special Operations individuals.

The Marlee Foundation has partnered with the Museum since 2015, helping fund the higher education of hardworking students who aspire to attend college, trade, or technical school. Mr. William Hale spearheaded this inspiring initiative, impacting the lives of young people who might otherwise not have the opportunity to attend school.

Sponsored by Tim and Pati Walsh, Trident Tuition Funds was created in 2020 to honor one of the first Scouts & Raiders, J.W. Lunde. This initiative provides financial support to the dependents of Naval Special Warfare individuals who wish to provide a private education for their preschool-age children, private school for children Kindergarten through 12th grade, and to help supplement college tuition for students facing financial hardship.

For the 2021-2022 academic year, Jay and Ginny Litty have joined this education initiative in generous support of these special young people.

The Museum is exceedingly grateful for our donors who make this program possible.

The application window for the 2021-2022 year for the Scholarship Program is now closed. Thank you to all students of our Special Operations who applied before the deadline of May 10, 2021 for consideration. Best of luck to all in your future education endeavors!
