“I have always been the proud daughter of a submariner, and all of my achievements thus far are the culmination of all the sacrifices and hard work by me and my family.  My pride runs deep.”

Dolphin Scholarship Foundation

Founded in 1960


Applications for the next round of Dolphin Scholarships are in full swing. As many of you know, earning a Dolphin Scholarship is not an easy feat. All applicants have outstanding grades, community service, leadership skills, and a commitment to education. Last year, only 34% of applicants were awarded a scholarship

This year, we would like to invite you and your fellow Dolphin Scholar Alumni to award a scholarship to an intelligent and motivated individual like yourself. We are pleased to announce the Haines Society Scholarship drive. John Haines was our very first scholar, in 1961 he received a $350 scholarship. We have since awarded over 1400 scholarships to you and your fellow alumni, totaling more than $14 million dollars. 

The Haines Society Scholarship will be funded solely by 62 years of Dolphin Scholar Alumni who want to give back to the next generation of high achieving applicants. We are aiming to raise the funds for a full year scholarship - $3,500, so one more Dolphin Scholar can be selected to join your ranks. 

Many hands make light work - we know that life is expensive, and your funds are pulled in many different directions. That is why we are asking you to partner with your fellow Dolphin Scholars - together YOU can give one more student the honor of being a Dolphin Scholar. With your help, we can make the cost burden of higher education a little bit lighter for someone now standing where you were, not that long ago.
