American Beach College Fund pays up to 100 percent of tuition at any of Florida’s state colleges or universities for qualified graduates of any Nassau County, Florida public high school.

To receive the minimum 65% benefit, students must have been Nassau County residents and attended public high school there for four years. To receive a full scholarship, students must have attended Nassau County public schools beginning in kindergarten. The American Beach Foundation strives to send low-income, first-generation college students to a Florida undergraduate institution. An emotional support system to help first-generation college students can be almost as important as financial support. Rather than simply handing over a check, the Foundation provides educational counseling to support and guide the scholarship recipient during the process of becoming acclimated to college.

To apply for a scholarship through the American Beach College Fund, visit your high school’s academic advisor.


The Foundation is committed to introducing American Beach to a new generation through conservation programs, cultural events, and community advocacy that SHOWCASE this ENVIRONMENTAL TREASURE and PROTECT it into the future.


The American Beach LEGACY as a bastion of EQUALITY and a SANCTUARY for people and ecosystems motivates us to empower and educate the next generation to save and sustain it as a priceless historical and cultural resource.
