The Daytona State College Foundation and Jeep Beach celebrated a new scholarship program Friday, October 6 with the “Jeep Beach Scholarship Parade” as part of Daytona State’s Homecoming festivities.
“Jeep Beach’s organizers and participants appreciate the value of supporting education, and their contributions will go a long way toward helping our students succeed," Foundation Vice President Tim Norton said.
Jeep Beach has contributed more than $25,000 in direct and indirect support to students attending Daytona State College over the years.
Jeep Beach, which attracted 225,000 visitors and more than 25,000 Jeeps to Daytona Beach this year for their annual April event, enlisted the Foundation as host of the inaugural “Jeep Beach Rated Restaurants: Where the Locals Eat” tasting event.
Proceeds from the tasting event enabled boys and girls from the area immediately surrounding the DSC main campus to attend summer athletic camps for free, provided scholarships for students in need of affordable housing while attending DSC this year, and supported the Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia-Flagler Counties Youth of the Year program.
Students interested in applying for the Jeep Beach scholarships – some of the more than 240 scholarships available through the Foundation – should visit DaytonaState.edu/Scholarships.
