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.
