The Athena Scholarship
It is the Green Beret Foundation’s relentless commitment to the Special Forces Regiment and its families that makes this all possible through our continuing initiative to educate, engage, and empower Special Forces spouses nationwide. It is for this reason the Foundation has created the Athena Scholarship.
The Green Beret Foundation will award three Special Forces spouses who are pursuing their undergraduate degrees $10,000 each. The Foundation will also award three Special Forces spouses who are pursuing their graduate degrees $10,000 each.
Applications will be accepted April 1st through June 1st and the winners will be announced in early July.
The Athena Grant
The Green Beret Foundation has not forgotten about those spouses whose career goals do not involve obtaining a college degree, and for this reason, we have also created the Athena Grant to cover the costs of vocational programs, exams, and professional development courses. This grant will also provide the financial support to transfer professional licenses from state to state, due to the spouses moving across the country
supporting their husband’s careers.
The Athena Grant will be accepting applications year-round as the need arises.
