The Professional Lifeguard Foundation

Founded in 1996

We are composed of donors/members, most of whom are still lifeguards, & are dedicated to providing scholarship awards to Los Angeles County Ocean Lifeguards. Since its inception, this non-profit organization has provided over $30,000 in unrestricted scholarship money. All Los Angeles County Ocean Lifeguards who are full-time or graduate students are eligible for consideration. Awards are based on the merits & achievements of each applicant.
