About the Scholarship

United States Army Special Forces – the Green Berets – constitute our Nation’s single largest special operations force. Recently, the Green Berets have been at the forefront of combat operations since they led our country’s response in Afghanistan after the attacks of 9-11. The families of these Green Berets, especially the children, have borne a heavy burden in this war against terror. They, too, serve this nation while their Soldiers deploy repeatedly into harm’s way. The Special Forces Scholarship Fund (SFSF) recognizes the service of Green Beret families by awarding merit-based post secondary educational scholarships to the daughters and sons of current and veteran Special Forces Soldiers. The Special Forces Scholarship Fund provides, for the first time in the 60 year history of the Green Berets, a merit-based scholarship opportunity for the children of Army Special Forces. This is the only organization whose sole purpose is to provide scholarships to children of Green Berets.

Scholarships are awarded annually and limited to undergraduate and graduate studies that result in a degree or vocational certification from an accredited Graduate School, University, College or Vocational/Technical Institution.  Additionally, recipients of Special Forces Scholarship Fund (SFSF) awards will receive no more than four (4) annual scholarships for undergraduate studies and two (2) scholarships for graduate studies.

100% of every dollar donated to the SFSF is awarded to our scholarship recipients. Our volunteer directors and officers accept full responsibility for all expenses of the fund. It is our privilege.
