The scholarship program is dedicated to the memory of Chuck Gwinn (1920-1993), the Navy pilot who first spotted the survivors of USS Indianapolis (CA-35) and initiated their miraculous rescue at sea.
The genesis of this college scholarship program began in 2002. Doug Stanton, author of In Harm’s Way, originated the idea and funded the initial USS Indianapolis Survivors Fund Scholarship Program to benefit family members of the ship’s crew and help preserve its historic legacy.
