Our College Scholarship Program helps Junior Guard alumni pay for college or other education programs after they are finished with high school. Many of these kids come back to become valuable members of our community. The majority of our fundraising is awarded to our College Scholarship Program.
Capitola Junior Lifeguard Instructors and former Capitola Jr. Lifeguards who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply for our college scholarships. You must be a high school graduate and be planning to attend an accredited college or trade school during the fall semester or quarter of 2021 and be a full-time student (12 units or more). In addition, you must have been enrolled and completed a minimum of four years in the Capitola Junior Lifeguard Program.
Scholarships are for tuition only, and all award checks will be made payable to the college/university. Scholarships will not be awarded to students who already have full ride scholarships, so if you already have your undergraduate expenses covered, please wait and apply at a later date if your situation changes.
