Encouragement and Recognition for Educational Achievements
The Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community thrives on achievement in every field of endeavor, including education. Active-duty operators, spouses, and children are encouraged to advance their learning as far as their interests and abilities will take them.
The educational support we provide augments funding accessible through Navy programs and provides additional financial resources that would not otherwise be available. Your support of our mission helps to ensure that members of the NSW community can pursue educational goals that are as crucial in the military as they are in the civilian world.
Once a year we award scholarships for college expenses to qualifying active-duty operators, their spouses and children, as well as children of qualifying former operators. Click on the scholarship program below to learn about eligibility and application process.
All scholarship application submissions are due Saturday, March 8, 2014.
- Navy SEAL Foundation Scholarships
- UDT-SEAL Scholarships and the Had Richards UDT-SEAL Memorial Scholarship
- Naval Special Warfare Development Group Scholarship
Supplemental Education Assistance
Where the Navy pays class costs only, we offer funds to pay for necessities such as books and lab fees. Our efforts help make it possible for NSW community members to participate in the Navy Tuition Assistance program and Program Afloat College Education (PACE). The Foundation also helps to defray the cost of test preparation for standardized exams through a partnership with Kaplan Test Prep.
Education with a Foundation Program
Children of NSW operators killed in combat or in training receive new computers every three years through the completion of their secondary education.
The Navy SEAL Foundation provides for command events as well as seasonal family events including the Easter Egg Roll, holiday parties, children’s campouts, and children’s sports days. Our motivation programs encourage the families of our SEALs, SWCC, and all other NSW personnel to keep involved and motivated as a valued part of the NSW community.
