College Student Pre-Commissioning Initiative (CSPI)

Description

CSPI is a program designed for motivated individuals who demonstrate a high caliber of academic and leadership excellence and who desire to serve their country in the United States Coast Guard. Students currently enrolled, accepted for enrollment or pending enrollment in a full-time bachelor's degree program at designated college or institution (defined in item 6 below) with the desire to complete college and receive a guaranteed commission as an officer in the United States Coast Guard can apply for CSPI. This means that a student currently pursuing an AA/AS degree at a junior college or community college who plans to continue with their BS/BA degree may be eligible for CSPI if they are accepted for enrollment at a qualifying college. Students who are accepted into this scholarship program will be enlisted into the United States Coast Guard, complete basic training during the summer, and receive full funding for up to two years of college. Applicants must be enrolled, accepted for enrollment or pending acceptance in an accredited college or university designated as a Minority Serving Institute (MSI). For more information about the scholarship, visit the program web page. To apply, follow the process on how to apply for an active-duty Coast Guard officer program. To get specific information on deadlines, best practices, and a listing of required application documents, you must contact your local recruiter.
