The Palm Beach Police & Fire Foundation provides annual scholarships to qualified children of eligible police officers, firefighters and sworn civilian employees of both departments. The Foundation also provides additional higher education scholarships and funding for graduate-level programs through a generous donation made by William I. Koch. Mr. Koch also donates four scholarships each year to Oxbridge Academy, the secondary private preparatory school he founded in 2011.
Individuals and organizations can also sponsor scholarships for the children of the Town’s Public safety employees in their name. For more information, please contact Mariella Vazquez at 561.820.8118 or Email Us
The Palm Beach Police & Fire Foundation has been a tremendous asset in covering the cost of attaining my secondary education at Florida Atlantic University. The scholarship not only reduces the financial stress on my family but, also shows that the citizens of Palm Beach genuinely care for the first responders and their families. The standards the scholarship fund has is extra encouragement for me to strive to do my best in my academia. I hope that not only the foundation but residents and donors know how much they are appreciated and the impact they have.
We sincerely appreciate the generosity of The Palm Beach Police and Fire Foundation. Your kindness has been extremely helpful in assisting with Dante's college education.

We are humbled to be awarded these opportunities by such a wonderful organization. Your graciousness is life changing.
Again, thank you so much for all of your help. We greatly appreciate the assistance you have provided us.
