JPMF Accepting RN Scholarship Applications

Applications for the Karla Foster, RN, Memorial Scholarship are now being accepted for students pursuing nursing degrees. Scholarship applicants must be residents of North Brevard County, be accepted into a nursing program, and possess a 3.0 or better grade point average. The awardee will be provided $3,000 to be applied towards tuition, books, supplies or other expenses related to completing the student’s nursing program.

The scholarship was established by Doug Foster in loving memory of his wife, Karla, who was tragically killed on September 11, 2006 by a hit and run driver. Karla had been a nurse at Parrish Medical Center for more than 22 years. This scholarship honors Karla and the profession she loved so much, and offers the opportunity to a deserving nursing student to carry on the professionalism, commitment, dedication and loving care that she demonstrated all her life.
