Captain Ed Caffrey Memorial Merit Scholarship
Captain Ed Caffrey was an outstanding Commodore of the E2/C2 community from 1992-1994. His vision and dedication led to the creation of the VAW/VRC Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Captain Caffrey was a man of great courage and integrity who showed unlimited commitment to service. In honor of his memory, a Merit Scholarship of $7000 the largest given by the Association, will be awarded to an applicant who has demonstrated academic excellence, personal integrity and a commitment to community service. It is our hope that this scholarship will forever ensure Captain Caffrey’s legacy within our community by nurturing those same qualities in the recipient of the award.
Any spouse or college-age child of current and former members of the VAW/VRC community is eligible to apply. Recipients are chosen solely based on merit. All applications go to judges free of name and rank. Winners receive their awards late-spring, early-summer.
