The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt. The Navy League has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and to the American people. The Navy League has grown into the foremost citizens’ organization to serve, support and stand with all the sea services – the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine.

The Navy League is comprised of 40,000 civilians in more than 240 councils around the world working to support sea service members and their families. We do this through a variety of education programs that remind our fellow citizens that the United States is a maritime nation whose national economic and security interests are inextricably tied to the freedom of the seas.

The Navy League has three missions: to enhance the morale of active-duty personnel and their families; inform Congress and the American public on the importance of strong sea services; and support youth through programs such as the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Junior ROTC and Young Marines that expose young people to the values of our sea services.

Membership in the Navy League is open to former military personnel of all services, as well as all U.S. citizens, men and women, with interest in keeping our maritime services a viable and broadly capable military force.

SCHOLARSHIP FOR A NAVY JROTC CADET FROM SEBASTIAN RIVER HIGH SCHOOL

Each year, the NLUS Treasure Coast Council #334 offers a scholarship to a deserving Navy JROTC Cadet from Sebastian River High School who will be furthering their education in a university, college, or other recognized higher learning institution.

The scholarship award for 2016 will be $1,000.00.

The scholarship is a one-time, lump-sum amount given directly to the senior NJROTC Cadet who has been accepted and will attend an accredited university, college, or other recognized higher learning institution in the fall of the upcoming year.

The scholarship will be based on financial need, along with consideration of high school grades, class standing, activities and community involvement.

The student selected must be a United States citizen, and a member of the Navy JROTC Unit at Sebastian River High School.

No member of the immediate family of any Navy League member, including grandparents, will be eligible for the scholarship.

The scholarship check will be presented to the successful applicant at a Navy League dinner meeting or luncheon in May or June.

The attached application, supporting materials, and a meeting with Navy League committee members will be the basis for the scholarship selection.

Any student receiving a fully paid scholarship, or an appointment to one of the nation’s military academies, will not be considered eligible to receive this scholarship.

To apply for this scholarship, please see the SNSI to receive the required paperwork and review the criteria.
