What is the Ben Carlson Scholarship?

The Ben Carlson Scholarship is a $10,000 grant which is awarded annually to the top 2 applicants from a worldwide search, in honor of Ben Carlson and his heroic legacy. Since 2015 we are proud to have distributed over $65,000 in scholarship money to help further the education of 7 outstanding and incredibly deserving students.

The 2018 Scholarship applications are currently under review. For those of you who have applied, we will contact you via email if you are chosen to advance to the next phase, which is a brief interview with our Scholarship Review Team. The winners will be notified by May of 2018 followed by arrangements to schedule your travels to Newport Beach, Ca, for the celebration scholarship dinner in your honor. At this ocean front dinner, our Scholarship Winners will be presented with a personalized plaque and special comments from our organization. The following day you will visit to the Newport Beach Lifeguard Headquarters with a visit to the Ben Carlson Statue, and a VIP shopping spree at Hurley Headquarters.
