Beach Kids Foundation President Linda Beasley announced this week that 15 students have been awarded $1,000 scholarships from the organization.

The scholarships go toward students enrolled in colleges. Beasley said the scholarships, which had a deadline to enter last month, can be re-applied for multiple years.

The eligibility consists of being a resident of Fort Myers Beach or having a family member who works on the beach. An essay is required and a board reviews the applications. Scholarships are forwarded to the schools to deposit into the account of the students, after the student provides a college identification number.

Beasley also announced that the Fort Myers Beach Fire Department donated $2,000 to the foundation from funds raised through the sale of firefighter calendars.

The scholarship recipients are:

Ben Faircloth, University of Central Florida

Cameron Fancher, University of Georgia

Luciano Gilberti, FGCU

Alexis Gore, University of Central Florida

Keara Haataja, University of South Florida
