Honor the service of America’s fighting Seabees and support the higher education dreams of a deserving student with your gift to SMSA. There are many ways you can support SMSA scholarship recipients.
INVEST IN A SCHOLARSHIP
SMSA Perpetual Scholarships allow our investors to build a lasting legacy, impacting Seabee children for generations to come. Perpetual Named Scholarships often honor or memorialize family members, Seabee leaders, and NAVFAC units and organizations. Perpetual Named scholarships begin with a $60,000 investment for a shared scholarship and $120,000 for an individual named scholarship. Contact Us to start a perpetual scholarship today.
SUPPORT THE SEABEE WOUNDED IN ACTION SCHOLARSHIP
The Seabee Wounded in Action Scholarship provides scholarship support to eligible children of Post 9/11 Purple Heart recipients, ensuring that these children have the opportunity to attend college, community college, or vocation/technical intuitions.
GIVE IN HONOR OR MEMORY OF A SEABEE
There is no more meaningful way to recognize someone significant to you than by investing in educational opportunities for future generations in their name.
