“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain

***  Surface Warships 2012:

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets

In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority
of the world’s surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime
forces those of choice for the world’s main actors and their allies – and
surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the
oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship
programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime
environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval
professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep
current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.

23 – 25 January, 2012, Hyatt Regency, Paris, France

***  The Surface Navy Association (SNA) Scholarship program is an annual
activity that SNA is very proud to offer to our members’ dependent children
and spouses for undergraduate and graduate education.  The academic
achievements of our scholars are impressive and our current year’s renewal
GPA (for those asking for a second through fourth year of
support) was 3.64.

An SNA Scholar receives an academic scholarship based on demonstrated
leadership, community service, academic achievement and commitment to
pursuing higher educational objectives. Our criteria require that an
applicant be a child, stepchild, ward or spouse of a current SNA member who
is a Surface Warfare Officer or Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist or
Officers and Enlisted members of the Coast Guard who’ve earned a permanent
Cutterman’s pin, with three years of sea time.

With humble beginnings in 1995, with one scholarship for $500, we now award
over $120,000 per year to 60 total individuals.  In fact, since
2002 we have provided nearly three quarters of a million dollars in
scholarship support to our members and families.

This past year, SNA received over 50 applications and was able to award
scholarships to 17 of these outstanding new applicants. With your help, we
can continue to grow this exceptional program. SNA is currently accepting
donations for the scholarship fund online at:

https://www.navysna.org/SNA/ScholarshipCCDonation.asp

The Surface Navy Association greatly values any donation and all donations
are tax deductible as SNA is a 501(c) 3 organization. As an example of the
financial clout we can have together, if every member gave just $25, it
would be enough to award over 20 fully-funded new scholarships. This is an
important way for us to invest in the futures of the families of our
nation’s Surface Warriors.
