In the 1990s, the original CLL established an endowment for UWF students. The endowment has now given out more than $12,000 in scholarships to UWF Emerald Coast students.
Since we became a charity in 2004, we've directly given out at least $20,000 in annual scholarships to UWF, as well as $2,000 to Northwest Florida State College (NFSC) students. Recently, the UWF scholarship was named to recognize the many contributions by two long-time CLL members: Drs. Hal Pruett and Bob Carney.
In addition to the scholarships, the CLL also donates to charities. We've donated $6,750 to Take Stock in Children and $3,750 to Children in Crisis.
Any student who requests to withdraw during the first week of a semester will have their fees refunded by check, to be issued by the CLL Treasurer.

In 1993 a group of retired educators, headed by Dr. Ed Dennery, created an organization known as the “Senior Center for Lifelong Learning.” Its purpose was to serve the educational interests of the senior community in the Fort Walton Beach area. Although there was never a minimum age for enrollees, we later changed our name to simply “Center for Lifelong Learning” to attract adults of all ages.Our organization is a Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI). Throughout the nation, hundreds of LLIs are joined in an organization called the Road Scholar Institute Network (RSIN).
