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.
