Graduates of the Naval Postgraduate School are true leaders, with an opportunity to impact the world around them every day.
The NPS Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the mission of the Naval Postgraduate School and its students, faculty and staff. Since its inception, the Foundation has provided an opportunity for members of the civilian and military communities to work together for the mutual benefit of national security. Through funding NPS research, recognizing and rewarding excellence, and elevating the student experience, the NPS Foundation provides an opportunity to directly impact our nation’s premier military graduate institution.
It’s official! The NPS Foundation is now partnering with the Naval Postgraduate School to revitalize the alumni association. Under the umbrella of the foundation, the alumni association will go live in January 2019. Managing the alumni association will not only allow the association to engage with NPS alumni from around the world, but will also help the association better support the school’s strategic goals.
