Full Tuition & $3,600 Monthly Stipend - Apply For the Coast Guard Scholarship!
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on August 28, 2019



You can earn tuition for school and a monthly salary—not to mention a guaranteed career straight out of college - as a Coast Guard Officer.

The College Student Pre-Commissioning Initiative (CSPI) is a scholarship program designed for college juniors and seniors attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities who demonstrate a high caliber of academic and leadership excellence. Students enrolled in CSPI receive two years of fully paid tuition while they participate in four hours of weekly Coast Guard duties during the school year, plus some additional training during breaks.

The CSPI program provides hands-on training to students who have a desire to succeed. Program participants who complete their bachelor’s degree receive a guaranteed commission as an officer in the U.S. Coast Guard upon graduating Officer Candidate School (OCS).

CSPI participants receive:

Competitive salary (including up to $3,600 monthly salary while in school)
Up to two years of tuition, fees, and books
Paid medical and dental insurance
30 days annual paid vacation
Summer leadership training
A starting salary of approximately $60,000 upon graduation and completion of Officer Candidate School
