In 2009, CGFO awarded its first academic scholarship to a spouse of an active duty Coast Guard member. That fortunate first year's winner was Tracy F. a well deserving, altruistic spouse stationed, at the time, in Puerto Rico. In 2010, CGFO awarded its the second scholarship to highly motivated and charitable spouse Kimberly G. of Virginia. In 2011, we hope to award even more in scholarship funds to yet another CG spouse.
