Beach Kids Foundation scholarships available
It’s that time of the year again for scholarships.
The Beach Kids Foundation is looking to get the word out about this year’s application process for Student Scholarships.
The organization, which hands out scholarships to Fort Myers Beach residents or children of Beach workers, has a scholarship application deadline of June 12.
Applications will need to be postmarked by 5 p.m. on June 12 and returned by mail to:
Beach Kids Foundation
2801 Estero Boulevard Suite B
Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931
The applications will need to be accompanied by a required essay and three references.
Students applying must either be high school seniors who have graduated and are enrolling in a college or trade school, or students presently enrolled at a college or trade school, Beasley said.
For information about scholarships, contact Deborah Groll at 239-850-6322 or Tracey Gore at 239-849-3603.
In the past, applications could be picked up at one of a few locations in town but with the coronavirus pandemic, Beasley said the organization will be emailing them out. The foundation’s board will review all of the applications with decisions on the scholarships expected in June.
