Those who partner with CHILDREN'S MARITIME FOUNDATION have established a Scholarship Program.  

This program provides financial assistance for children who want to attend a program aboard the Tallship American Pride, yet do not have the funds to do so. We consider this a priority in serving the community.  


The following are the guidelines that have been established, in order to keep integrity in the designation of funds.  

  • Completion of the application form in full. This application will allow the selection committee to become better acquainted with you and your interests.  
  • Anyone is eligible for scholarship funds regardless of race, creed, or gender.  
  • Scholarships are available for a single participant or a class.  
  • To verify the financial need of the applicant, a letter of recommendation must be submitted by a credible source, over the age of 18, that is familiar with the applicant’s family and financial situation, for example: a leader in a local church, school, organization or government agency. The verification must be submitted in the form of writing.  
  • The written recommendation may be followed-up with a telephone call of confirmation.  
  • Scholarships will be awarded toward participation of a single program.  
  • Scholarships will be awarded according to date received and financial need as long as funds are available. Generally scholarships do not exceed 50% of the total cost.  Full scholarships may be considered upon request of the applicant as long as funds are available.  
  • Certain restrictions apply to funding as specified by individual grantors.  


Please be sure to fill out the entire application. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications must be received no later than sixty (60) days prior to the program.
