special forces scholarship fund

The families of the Green Berets 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, sons and spouses of current and veteran Special Forces Soldiers. This is the only organization whose sole purpose is to provide scholarships to the family of Green Berets.
