The San Diego Junior Lifeguard Program prides itself on providing opportunities to all qualified students. If cost is a challenge, the program does offer a limited number of full scholarships. Scholarships are available for one session per child. Scholarship applicants must complete a scholarship application, provide proof of City of San Diego residency, and income documentation. Please see the Scholarship Application provided on this page for additional information.
Scholarship applicants do not have to register through our online registration system. Instead, once your scholarship application is received and approved, you will be assigned a session based on the date and time your packet was received by our Lifeguard Services office. Our staff will contact you regarding registration procedures when your child(ren) is approved for a scholarship. Our staff will also contact you if your application is declined. When submitting your application, please make sure it is complete with all required documentation
