Coast Guard Academy seeks sponsors for incoming cadets

Applications are being accepted through June 30 for the sponsorship program at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, to help new cadets adjust to the transition from civilian to military life. Sponsor families help provide relief, advice and guidance as well as support, friendship, and learning beyond the Academy environment.

Sponsor applicants, both military and civilian, must be at least 28 years old and live within 25 miles of the Coast Guard Academy. Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Active duty military must have a rank/rate of E-7 or O-3 and above to be considered. All potential sponsors may undergo a background security check and provide two references with their application.
