CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Now in its twelfth year of existence, the Carnival Cruise Lines’ Scholarship Program, developed in collaboration with the Florida Prepaid College Foundation, will enable 15 fifth-grade students from Paul L. Dunbar, Jesse J. McCrary, Jr. and Riverside Elementary schools who are currently enrolled in HEAT Academy to receive a four-year tuition scholarship to an accredited Florida college or university of their choice. Over the previous eleven years, Carnival Cruise Lines has provided a total of 165 scholarships with an estimated value of more than $1.9 million. As part of the program, the Florida Prepaid College Foundation will match Carnival’s donation dollar-for-dollar to fund these scholarships. The Class of 2014 will be the fifth group of former HEAT Academy students eligible to apply for the Carnival Scholarship prior to their graduation.
