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.
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.
