The latest news out of the National Navy SEAL Museum

An Extraordinary Evening

Many thanks to all of our sponsors, supporters, SEALs, and guests who made the Museum’s An Extraordinary Evening With Admiral McRaven a wonderful success.

The Scholarship Program

The Navy SEAL Museum continues to care for the families of Special Operations through our Trident House Charities Program. Comprised of four branches, the Trident House Charities Program seeks to serve this special group of warriors and their families.
 
One arm of this outreach is the Museum’s Scholarship Program. Made possible by the generous donations of caring benefactors like yourselves, The Scholarship Program offers gifts in various amounts to the children of Special Operations individuals.
 
The Marlee Foundation has been doing this successfully for several years, 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.
 
New this year is the addition of Trident Tuition Funds. Generously sponsored by Tim and Pati Walsh, Trident Tuition Funds was created to honor one of the first Scouts & Raiders, J.W. Lunde. This program provides financial support to the dependents of Navy SEALs 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 these students at university.
 
Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year for both the Marlee Foundation and Trident Tuition Funds will be available on the Museum website beginning March 31, 2020. Completed applications are due to the Museum’s Executive Director no later than May 15, 2020. Awards will be determined by mid-June of this year.
