Stories of students who have received scholarships.

Julia Bianchi

My brother and I would like to thank you for the financial support that has been provided to us. The support has been an immense help and given us numerous opportunities while in school and decreased the financial burden, allowing us to focus on our studies. We are forever grateful to the Custodes Libertatis Memorial Foundation for honoring the sacrifice our family has made.

Very Respectfully,

Julia Bianchi

I wanted to sincerely thank you for making this all happen. It warms my heart that there are still people out there affected by September 11th, 2001. There are no words for how appreciative I am for this opportunity. Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and kindness. It is an emotional thought to think about how an institution like the Naval Academy is helping me, knowing how much it helped my dad. It is another link that he and I hold now, after 17 years of his death, and you made that happen. He would be so proud. He cared so much about his job and all that the Navy represented. As always, GO NAVY.

With much respect,

Kelsey E. Donovan
