Seaside Scholarship Program

Marineland Dolphin Adventure is proud to offer the Seaside Scholarship Program to ensure that diverse audiences, regardless of economic status, have the opportunity to participate in our unique educational experiences at little to no cost. Any school within the state of Florida is eligible to apply based on available funds; however, please keep in mind that Title I and lower-income schools will take higher priority. Decisions are based on available funds and the number of applications received throughout the school year.
