Medical Scholarships

In partnership with the Parrish Medical Center (PMC) Auxiliary, medical scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors who reside in the PMC service area (SR 528 north to the Brevard/Volusia county line). Any student in need of financial assistance with an unweighted grade point average of 3.0 or greater, based on a 4.0 scale, and who is seeking a career in a medical or healthcare field related to human health will be considered.

Those awarded JPMF/Auxiliary scholarships in previous years may reapply each year if they are continuing in the human health/medical field and maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average. Strong consideration is given to applicants intending to return to North Brevard County to pursue their careers upon graduation. Awards are to be applied to tuition, books, supplies or other expenses related to the student’s educational pursuit at a regionally accredited two-or four-year college/ university.
